MAP PAINTING



Inspired by Jill Mayberg's colorful Bird paintings... I decided to paint a colorful Bird of my own. I used the canvas that I covered with pieces of torn map. I then sketched a very loose bird and whatever else came to mind, and started to paint. I like being able to see the pieces of map through the painting, and there's also a lot more texture...which I really like. It was a lot of fun, and I am looking forward to experimenting more with mixed media.

Such gorgeous colors, such a fabulous composition! You always leave me smiling and wowed, Deb. I am closing my old blog soon and am wondering if you might add a "subscribe" widget to this blog. This will help me to know when you do a new post since I'm on WordPress without thumbnails. Thanks so much Deb and I understand if it is too much of a hassle.
