The proverbial saying - a bird in the hand is worth two in the bush used to mean that it is better to hold onto something one has than to risk losing it by trying to get something better. The idea behind this series comes from the idea that the bird in your hand can sometimes cause you to not even attempt change or improvement in life for fear of losing that bird in hand. Each piece in the series in progress will show a bird in hand surrounded by threats or discomforts. In this case her hands are tied by the snake, and both she and the bird are being poked by thorns.

Better to stay safe than take risks, and try something new? Maybe not.

Due to differences in monitors, colours may vary slightly from actual collage.
