BLACKBIRD wax collage in process

First I want to thank everyone for giving me their thoughts on the education system today...or more accurately our lovely school children and their attitudes CURRENTLY!  There is always room for growth!!  More on this later perhaps!!

Today I had a FEW moments to begin another of what I call my EYE CANDY pieces...my
Cloth/Paper/Scissors type pieces that are a KICK to do!!  This piece is going to have a blackbird as the star...one of my newest paper cast  pieces...As you can see...here are the little birdies before I give them wings...

The background is acrylic over molding paste...on a 6x6 gallery wrap generous 1 1/2" depth. 

I will feature my blackbird...for now he is just sitting there...I have more to do to the background...he also probably won't be so high on the canvas...but...this was just so you could see the steps as I go along...

So, now off to print about a gazallion pics of landscapes for my drawing students to use as reference...May 7 is my last day...right now I'm thinking it can't come too soon!! HA

HAPPY CREATING...and DON'T FORGET THE PAINTING CHALLENGE THIS MONTH!!  If you forgot anything...the pics are in the MARCH 30 post...and the contest is between there and here...ha!!

I came here to tell you I loved Birds on a Light -- fabulous combination of subjects -- and now I see that you haven't just been sitting around admiring yesterday's triumph... You're on a roll -- as usual.

This piece is looking really amazing, Saundra. The texture and colors of the background, the blackbird will make them dance even more than they do on their own. Lest you think I'm not, I'm still working on the background for my cast leaves. The leaves and heart are the only thing I've had no real issues with on this project. The background? Oy vey!
