"I Want Two Wings", Mixed Media on Canvas, 5"x5"
Click here to bid (5"x5"inches)
Day 12 of my 30 day painting challenge! I am feeling a little bit of pressure since I fell behind due to computer mis-haps, unexpected daily events and essentially LIFE!
I have to say that I have learned a lot in the 12 paintings that I have done so far. One of the things that I feel like I am doing is expanding my horizons about my use of color and color combinations. This piece started off as a canvas that I painted metallic gold. I then decided that I was going to paint a goldfinch on it and started working on that. Once I sat down to put it all together I remembered how I recently enjoyed working with all the lace I have.
I used a combination of yellow, steel blue, white and black lace on the piece. I used another piece of music that I had found in the vintage 1949 Girl Scout songbook I recently purchased. I was happy how it came all together in the end.
This piece is going to be up for auction at Daily Paintworks.
I appreciate any comments that you have about the piece or the process I used to create it.
As always, thanks for stopping by to take a look!
