"A chance to see how the artist works. SOS (Suffolk Open Studios) members invite you to visit them in their studios, giving you the opportunity to see the creative process, discuss the artist’s motivation and ask questions. There will be work in progress, as well as finished, some of which may be for sale, though there is no pressure to buy." ~ Suffolk Open Studios

From imagination.

Centuries ago, when hunters first captured birds of paradise and brought them back to Europe, they wanted to display the gorgeous plumage to the best advantage, and therefore they removed the legs. Hence, the legend arose that these beautiful birds had no need of legs because they lived in the sky, drinking the dew of heaven, and when they died they fell to earth.
