Well done, Brenda. Each beautifully composed section balances the other. Your skill sets were working art magic while you were "working out crappy mind things."

I love that the decaying one seems to be wearing a cloak of feathers.

How much did you plan of this piece?

Zero, actually. I slammed a piece of random watercolor paper down on the table (thus the weird size) and just started drawing whatever came to my head. It was another piece to work out crappy mind things.

The composition isn't the best, and that's probably why.  But honestly a good painting wasn't really what I was aiming for.

The flow of all the falcon heads reminded me of some huge unplanned sketches I've done - the natural flow is very nice regardless of planning.

The sub-state is mu/wu?

I'll leave the interpretation up to the viewer. For me, the sub-state is a second-class soul, or an inferior state of existence.
