This abstract bird art combines my natural tendency towards realism, with the fun of just mucking about with paint. I have always included some abstract elements in realistic settings, however the two styles are more often becoming integrated in my artwork. It is not my intension to move to one style or another, I enjoy combining them, or not, as each particular artwork dictates.
The mother ostrich, or hen, lays the largest eggs in the world. The hen can weigh up to 300 pounds (135 kg). Because of her large size these huge eggs are actually the smallest bird eggs, about 2 %, in proportion to her body weight.
