This bird laid an egg

At least I hope it looks like an egg, not something else. I painted the bird with my left (non-dominant) hand -- an exercise Katie Kendrick suggested in one of her CPS articles. I liked the way it turned out so I scanned and shrunk it to fit on a tile.

I am trying to do the painting lefty exercise a couple times a week followed immediately by painting righty as Ms. Kendrick suggests. Just for a couple of minutes each. It's supposed to trick my brain into being more creative....or ambivalent or ambidextrous, or something. In any event, I have not been able to recreate this bird with my right hand. It always looks too intentional. I added the egg to the shrunken image with a stamp. It's an egg, really.

an awesome idea... I am in need of some inspiration. Perhaps I should create with the opposite hand...a thought to ponder. It gives your art that slight dada look.
