One of my art friends said "your work is getting simpler" and I know she meant that as a compliment. I like this piece because it has the essence of a bird without a bird! Just before I created it I had gone to a Polo Match. I had arrived early and got a terrific spot to view the game. Just before it started a single rider came out and chased all the sea gulls away from the field. It was glorious - all of them taking flight with the horse loping around the field. The image stuck with me and I picked up a couple feathers.
