Firebird's Child — pants required?
 
There's a gentle spring rain this morning. I love how when I returned from SFAL on Monday the trees had burst forth with bright green foliage. The avenue my apartment is on is also full of greenery. I don't know why, but being in under the boughs of healthy, leafy trees always feels me with peace and calm. I really like living in this neighborhood.

Lots of progress since the last post. I am working on the wings now. I think I have to tone them down somehow, they are coming across as too intense. Maybe I'll make them translucent. 

I'm thinking of what would be a good image for next month. I'm open to requests or suggestions. Part of me wants to redo an image I did in 2003 illustrating the nursery rhyme "Star Light, Star Bright." The idea was really good but OMG was the execution below par.
