Birkon design


This is for a birkon for my stepson Shelomoh, who is nearing bar mitsvah. It is made up according to his enchanting specifications: birds, a crown, initials in pomegranates, background as red as a stop sign. Since I have trouble distinguishing many hues (there is a reason most of my art is monochrome), I had to rely on the paint tube label ("brilliant red") for the last request in his list; lately I have been told that many of the clothes I thought were red are in fact some kind of orange or coral.
