Drawing Challenge: Rara Avis



Contemplations

ingedients: vintage book pages and ephemera, image transfers, Pitt artist pens



I just couldn't resist the theme of this drawing challenge, hosted by Eric Adama of the wonderful Cerulean blog: rara avis.  So, I accepted his kind invitation to participate.

Defined:
- a rare bird.
- an unusual, uncommon or exceptional person or thing.




Please go to Eric's blog on November 22 to follow the links to the other drawing challenge participants. Can't wait to see what everyone has come up with!
