Artist Statement

I now own both 20x200 edition versions of Jason Polan's 132 Birds at the American Museum of Natural History; both the small book format and the full page format. I love them. After I got them I couldn't stop thinking about them. But in my head, the birds would all eventually rustle up their feathers and fly away, out of their stuffed-ness, needing a day off, once a year or so (maybe on Christmas Day when the museum is closed?), to whirl around and stretch their wings before settling back in the museum to be marveled at again. So I painted them their day off. And Jason says he likes it, by the way.
