14″ x 11″ Pastel Pencil on PastelMat
This is a drawing of the mythical Phoenix, engulfed in flames after resurrection. It is based on an actual photograph I took at the San Diego Zoo. Yes, believe it or not, they have a Phoenix there, although it is of the white ecotype, is not flaming, and is erroneously labeled as a “Secretary Bird”.
