birds of melancholy

 |  March 27, 2006

These are more like mysterious creatures than monsters, but I wanted to participate in Illustration Friday this week. I just made these two this past week and finally came up with better names for them. They are both Birds of Melancholy, the bird girl is longing and the owl girl is knowing.

Bird of melancholy: longing, mixed media encaustic, 6×6 inches
Bird of melancholy: knowing, mixed media encaustic, 6×6 inches

    This is beautiful. Nice use of colours. And the "monster" is expressive too!
    Good work!
