"Summer Is a-Coming In", Mixed Media on Wood, 6"x6"

Click to Bid (6"x6")

Day 7 of the 30 day painting challenge!  That is one week so far!  Yeah!

This piece was inspired by an incident when my daughter and I spotted a different bird in our yard.  We participate in Project Feeder Watch through the Cornell Lab of Ornithology every year where we count birds on a weekly basis.  We spotted a flock of birds in one of our cherry blossom trees and soon discovered them to be cedar waxwings.  We were so surprised and happy since we normally get the same birds our our property.

It is a mixed media piece on wood.  I used Prismacolor pencils for the bird, cherry blossom and branch.  The wood panel has been painted and glazed with acrylics.  The sheet music was found in a thrift store and came from an old Girl Scout song handbook dated 1949.

This piece is up for auction at Daily Paintworks.
