After the storm, watercolor

Morning of freedom, 5 1/2 by 8 watercolor, 300 lb. Lanquarelle
Earthbound no longer, in a beautiful morning after a storm, birds take flight in the joy of freedom, of living and companionship.
Metaphors for freedom and excitement every day. Are we listening? Are we seeing? Or are we stuck on the ground in the Great Plains, missing opportunities to take flight?

Palette--Cobalt blue, Cad orange, Permanent rose, raw and burnt sienna, Ultamarine blue.
