"Murmuration" - 20x30in mixed media abstract on canvas

For each Wanaka Arts Society exhibition there is a general section for members to display work on any subject and in any medium, and a special section where members create a piece of work to a particular theme. This Easter the special section was "Wings", as this year was also the biannual Warbirds Over Wanaka Airshow in our town.

Above is the piece I submitted into the Wings section. It is of those wonderful, beautiful, dynamic huge flocks of Starlings that seem to fly and move like a huge of school of fish. I've seen this twice in real life, once here in NZ near a little country town called Tarras, and once in southern France. Both times it was over way too quickly.

So here is "Murmuration" against one of my abstract Central Otago landscapes.
