Wishing Bird by Ava

I am constantly blown away at Ava's creative mind. At 8 years old she gets the concept of doing a series where you present a strong idea with variation. Here is one of her drawings from her Wishing Bird series - a detailed, patterned, magical bird that when you look at it in the eye, grants you a wish. The beaks on the righthand side are other birds that are fanning the Wishing Bird with palms. Magic is in the air! Each bird is presented in the same composition but contains different patterns, colours and messages. We are planning a mother, daughter, grandmother art show in September at Granville Island in Vancouver where Ava's Wishing Birds will be for sale as well as on her upcoming blog which will be launched shortly.
