TAKE A WORD


YANKEE DOODLE

This, believe it or not,  is my interpretation on the theme of WINGS!  I'm still in my Angi Sullins and Silas Tobell inspiration mode and I so wanted to create a fish ...... on a bicycle.  Yes, I know, I can't explain it either.

The question was where would the wings fit in?  The fish definitely looked silly wearing wings and anyway they still looked like fins how ever hard I tried.  Well the fish on a bicycle would not be denied and so I made it and in desperation added a blue bird (wings .... get it?) to his hat.  No sooner had I done that than the hat disappeared off the fish's head.  I think the blue bird did it!

Having gone through this odd creative process I still wasn't to be left alone.  'Feather in his cap' popped into my head and I seemed to remember there being a song.  Yankee Doodle came to town riding on a pony, he wore a feather in his cap and called it macaroni.   Yes, that's the one!

I know.  I know.  There's no hope for my sanity.

Thanks, Marie.

There is absolutely nothing wrong with the way your mind works, it's creative. Loving the fish on a bike and so pleased you didn't give. The bird stealing the hat is a flash of brilliance, as is the feather in the cap.
Great work, great piece, great imagination.

thanks so much for sharing the process
