I am pleased to say that I have actually had a couple of people ask what have I been doing lately so I thought I would post something. Anything.
This little towhee is in colored pencil and is about 4″ long.
I created it with the idea of placing it in an art quilt. I struggle with the background. I have already ruled out two efforts. I like the bird enough to try to get it right. I placed it on a simple, colorless background and realized it needed more vibrancy. I placed it on a tree and realized that makes it look too traditionally picturesque. I hope it will find a home in my next placement.
I am very much inspired by the art of Annemieke Mein. I ordered her book thru Amazon and have been devouring it since its arrival. I am very impressed by the large scale of her work and also the amount of research she puts into a piece. It is amazing work.
Another artist whose talent is enviable is Karin Franzen. Worth a trip to her site.
But, this is what I have really been doing. Watching a potato sprout. I haven’t had the heart to throw it away. Looks like an evolving creature from the black lagoon. Showing my true self now…..
IF is Double this week. Think a duplicated image fits???
