Give 'Em the Bird

Yet another late entry

I have received another piece of bird art. A couple of weeks back I asked readers to send in their bird art, and it keeps on coming. This time, Shirl Sazynski sent in a Mercy Tarot Card, which was made with gauche, color pencil and salt wash.
Thanks, Shirl.

I have so far received only one piece of velvet art, so get on it.
