New Defensive Postures subseries: Whirlybirds plus cat.



These paintings are all 18×36, a very comfortable size for me.  I’m using the same organizing principals as the other Defensive Postures work, but instead of using pictures of used cars, I am collecting old helicopter pics.  I became interested in doing a series of game birds because of the illustrations in a bird book a co-worker was perusing.  The golden spiral arrangement of the feather patterns and the born to die nature of game birds were a factor.
