I Know Why The Caged Bird Sings I

Painting - Acrylic, Watercolor, & Ink On Watercolor Paper
BEST viewed enlarged
I was reading a piece by one of my most favorite writers, Maya Angelou, and I was inspired to create a panel series about "Caged Birds".
In my paintings,
the reason the caged bird
is because she enjoys
in her own home;
she has discovered
an unlocked door
by which she can come
whenever she pleases
and no one knows

This is a painting made with fluid and heavy body acrylics and ink on shell paper ( a type of rice paper with a crushed shell coating); I also used a rubber stamp to add embellishments to the piece.
