3x3. My very talented friend Gustavo Aimar is having a little party to celebrate his blog's third anniversary and you are all invited! He has created a special blog called 3 x 3 where he will be posting tiny 3 x 3 cms (1 1/8" x 1 1/8") works of art by anyone that wants to participate. These three little birds are my contribution. I used watercolors, white acrylic ink and a Micron pen on gray bookboard.
