Lately I have been creating pieces of art featuring birds. I love painting and drawling vibrant and colorful roosters and owls. Both birds are full of so much personality and I have endless ideas when it comes to creating these feathered friends. On New Year’s Eve we took a trip to a local zoo. They had beautiful
and Elegant Peacocks.
I have wanted to do some pieces featuring peacocks and this week I finally finished my first three drawings. All three colored pencil and pastel pieces were created on vintage music pages from a hymn book I found at the Salvation Army.
I have a number of ideas for each image. The first project I am working on is a series of multimedia collages mostly made up of recycled materials.
This is the first collage I have created. The peacock image was printed on a recycled brown paper bag. Other materials use in the collage include a recycled cereal box, ticking, vintage book pages, vintage sequins, a doily my mother-in-law was giving away, more recycled brown paper bag, vintage beads and thread that was my great-grandmothers. I also used colored pencil and pastel, gold glitter paint and left over coffee to stain the doily. I am hoping to finish the other two collages this weekend.
I hope your weekend is full of LOVE!
