Resurrection

This piece is called: "Hey, I made it!". I just finished it this afternoon for Good Gallery's monthly themed group show, this time the theme was Resurrection. And seriously, I'd probably get nothing done if it weren't for these monthly themes lately.
This one depicts a phoenix, feeling refreshed after his self immolation. I imagine that it probably is pretty scary for a minute for the phoenix to endure this process, hence the title, yet here he is in full splendor. His nest is a campfire made of basalt stones and paper twigs, and the container was found as usual at a thrift store. He is about 5 or 6 inches tall from beak to the tip of his tail feathers. Be sure to come check him out in person a Good Gallery! The reception is next Friday, April 3rd from 7 to 10. Check goodpdx.com for further details.
