White Monjita (Little Nun)

May 4, 2006 - 8" x 10" - 2B Graphite on 70lb acid free Strathmore art paper.

From Argentina the "White Monjita is a member of the flycatcher family. As monja is the Spanish word for nun, the name of this bird translates as "little nun," appropriate considering its striking white plumage trimmed in black. White Monjita is sometimes seen around cemeteries, where it is taken to be the spirit of a resident there." -- James Ownby
