Over the years I've played with images for Moonbird Music
but I've never been satisfied with any of my own
efforts. When I put up this website in 2007 I looked online for something to capture my imagination and I found a wonderful piece
of black and white 'scratchboard' artwork but at the time I didn't know who created the artwork.
I modified it, adding color and increasing the size of the moon, throwing up some stars in the sky. And in the meantime, online
search engines have improved and when I did another search and found the original image again, I was able to find the artist who
Allow me to present the very talented Denise M. DesLauriers
who has very graciously
given permission for me to continue to use her artwork as the basis for the Moonbird Music logo. Her website is not currently available
but I hope it will be again in the future so you might see what beautiful work she does.
The original as presented on her art blog and my first 'colorized' version.
Then I took to playing with the size of the moon... that's dangerous territory!
