Three Snowbirds

This is the almost finished version of a painting I submitted to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel for their Christmas Day cover contest. In the final version the contrast is upped a bit more and I smoothed some of the more awkward creases in the collaged newspaper strips. Wish me luck!
