I love this painting! Love the silhouette and collage elements. I like watching the grackles when I go to Austin, TX. They are EVERYWHERE. It's fun to observe their antics, but oye, they are NOISY! They have such strange, metallic vocalizations.
I love to watch the males little courtship dance and their irridescent feathers. The noise they make is so unique. As soon as you hear it you know what kind of bird it is. We have alot of them here but not so much that they are a nuisance. Love your painting!
