Cartographic art

One lazy day and a blank canvas later I managed to almost frantically put paint this canvas and add the illustration over the top after hanging it for an evening. Ruining it once then recovering for if nothing else an interesting finish. 
The base layer references the local area and the roads around my house while the illustration started with the birds that constantly perch in the garden, eying off the insects around our sprouting seedlings. Our occasional butterfly that flitters among the flowers is a pleasant change from the plague of moths that are attempting to devour every piece of clothing in the wardrobe.
