I’ve seen this phrase a lot lately, even as a show title. As it ended up, the mixed media wall sculpture class held here at my studio on March 14th really took it to heart! None of the participants set out to have birds on their artwork but, by the time we were through, everyone did!
Our first order of business was to pick out a shape for the background. That led into selecting lots of different size/shape pieces of wood/items and working on a possible layout prior to painting & construction.
With an idea of the direction they wanted to go in the background painting began, followed by painting & detailing the smaller pieces that might be used. It was a lovely, sunny day so we were able to go outside for the painting process and enjoy the weather!
While sorting through the supplies I found some pieces that I worked on last year and decided to pull them out and create with the others this time. 🙂 After the paint dried then the assembly began.
Here are the finished pieces….do you see the birds?
