The gray crowned crane inspiration

There are 2 gray crowned cranes living on the campus of my son's high school. Each morning as I inch along with the traffic, I watch them as the go about their business. They seem to peacefully coexist with the noise and confusion that accompanies teenagers. [caption id="attachment_1085" align="aligncenter" width="400" caption="The Cranes"][/caption]

One morning my son took a picture of the cranes, he sent the image to me with this message - " I can hardly wait to see your interpretation". I guess he has noticed that I do not see thing the same way others do...

It added even more color to the piece - I love color... I typically use my illustrations on to make pillows,  but this time I wanted to spread my wings, I used it to customize a lamp shade.
