Two Minds is derived from my observations of society finches.  Their differing traits, aggression and civility, balance the confined environment that they cohabit.  Two contrasting personalities share a single body.  Intricately carved feathers of ocher and light brown are illuminated against an emerald green wood grain background.  I used three separate hand carved woodblocks to print Two Minds.
