too much windex?
digital collage / mixed media
the layers beneath the picture
This is a response to an event that happened one quiet Sunday afternoon.... I was lazing around reading a magazine, when all of a sudden there was a loud *BANG* at the back doors that open to the backyard. A poor bird had flown into the glass doors and knocked itself out. At first I kind of panicked and was wondering what one is supposed to do with a dead bird. I was looking at it, then it blinked and I realized it was still alive. I started to pick it up, and it sort of flipped itself over onto its feet, but just stood there. So I picked it up again, and carried it over to the fence where the trees are, and it flew up into the trees. I'm assuming there's lots of bird nests back there.
