Day 5- 30 Paintings in 30 Days
11" x 11" image, mixed media, available for $125. Some paintings just go smoothly. Today was one of those days. Hey, I deserve it, after yesterday's trials! I knew that I wanted to collage the feathers again, and decided to have the crow sticking his head into a busy section, that would repeat the patterns on his wings. After collaging on the right, I negative painted, using acrylic so that I could make up my own pattern. This was fun to paint from start to finish! I named it "Opening Act" because it looks like the crow is getting ready to go on stage.
