Day Seven: Two Artists Collaborate to Create Three Birds

Today's birds are a collaboration between my neighbor Grace (who is almost 8) and me. I drew the birds in pen and ink: one from my imagination and two from reference, and Grace added color.
Throughout history, artists have worked together to create art. Today Grace and I are continuing in this tradition.
The life of the artist can be a very solitary one. Long stretches of time alone are essential to the creative process. Collaborating with someone else from time to time eases the sense of isolation.
