HOW DORIS WAS CONCEIVED

First, inspired by the card above, I decided to paint a domestic bird with a Christmas hat, in a different pose. I thought this was a twist on my popular Mouse series.

Second, I considered what birds were connected to Christmas. Turkey, Duck, Chicken, Goose, Partridge and possibly Quail. For me, Turkey is not a tradition because I was raised in England where Goose is far more common and Duck is a more classy alternative. Turkey is something which I became more familiar with after I migrated.

I decided on Duck because of the classy slant. I painted away until I was happy with Doris and then went to add the hat. I've always enjoyed adding hats to my Mice, but Doris looked so darn classy with her golden background that I just couldn't do it to her. So here you have a naked Doris Duck so to speak.
