Phoenix Rising

This is my post for this weeks "Illustration Friday" topic "Phoenix". Things have been so crazy these days, and yesterday I really needed some down time, so I fiddled away at this image for a good chunk of the day. Man that felt good! You can click on the image to enlarge it. Happy new Year everybody!

Compositionally captivating...this bird possesses elegance and flair that only a Poenix would. Color scheme and decorative arabesques make this work stellar! I would love to see this in a tapestry ;)
