Spirit Bird study

Acrylic study on 8x10 watercolour paper.

This was supposed to be a study for another work in the Fault line series... but when I flipped it on it's side... I saw a spirit bird instead... this happens quite often... I think I am making one thing but when I flip it in another direction, something else shows up... sometimes I suspect my muse sees either upside down or backwards... and she is busily doing her thing while she has me distracted by another task at hand.
Another sample here... I painted this piece in this direction... I had it photographed etc and was going to call it 'centering'...

...until I threw it on the wall upside down and then saw an orchid below.
