In this painting, I've created a pattern of bird song rattles, abalone shell buttons and attached DVD disks to the corners. Cahuilla bird singing was endangered in the 1980's, but made remarkable recovery in the 1990's and continues today. As a Cahuilla artist, I wanted to document the bird singing renaissance by making this painting. I refer to it as my "blanket" painting.
