I don't think birds will ever go out of fashion. There's something in the symbolism of birds that will always delight. Its the notions of flight, freedom, grace, elegance and cheekiness, all appeal and inspire. I have a wing tattooed on my hip for exactly that reason - freedom and protection spiritedness- that's what it symbolises to me anyways... But now onto the art.
These are the amazing, no - the AMAZING prints of Irish lass Bridget Farmer.

Aren't they fantastic! I love the scribbly drawing style that becomes ordered chaos, it has a grace and movement that really captures the fleeting moment of trying to observe the often shy, cheeky and beautiful bird life.
Have a fabulous weekend!
