Have you watched a bird taking flight? Tail feathers flash in the sunlight, beaks sharpen the sky, feathers ruffle in the wind. While staying in an apartment overlooking a canal close to the northern perimeter of Paris, I created On The Wing, a homage to flight. A day later, I was on the plane heading home to Bowen Island where eagles and ravens and blue jays enliven the sky.
