Upon hearing a loud "thump" on my dressing room window, I looked out to find this little guy knocked out. He was so still that I thought he was a goner. I realized that he was a Cedar Waxwing and I had never seen one up close - he was SO beautiful. I was inspired to do this little painting as a remembrance and as I started sketching, he began to awaken and slowly sat up in a daze and moments later, flew off. I'm grateful to have fully embraced the moment.
