We are seeking the source

Sometimes a piece of work seems like it’s finished and then isn’t. The piece ‘We Are Seeking The source’ is a case in point.

Below is how it was originally. And it wasn’t really working. It felt too empty, just not quite finished.

So I decided to add some more birds. And it looks one hundred times better. Much more complete.  The birds look happier to be in a larger group too. Now it has a presence.  It’s going to be framed up in a lovely polished oak frame to really bring out the colours.

The birds are seeking the source of the Thames, they are off on an adventure to find a mythical place.  I think they maybe fed up with London and figure there must be new places to find. Don’t we all feel like that sometimes?
