Bird Bacharach 2

Michael's Bird

My rediscovery of Bird Bacharach inspired me to revisit him again — this time in full colour. This painting is for my good friend, the organist Michael Murray, so continuing the idea of a bird with a giant organ stuck to his back is somewhat appropriate (at least I hope it is; there are some musicians who would rather not have any reminders of what they do for a living! Michael doesn’t strike me as being that sort of person, though). Anyhow, I thought I’d post a photo of it now while things are colourful and festive — it’s about to get a whole lot darker…
