Birds on Wires...8x10 panel board...07 March 2009


Birds & Wires...8x10 panel board...07 March 2009



I am starting to take an interest in birds or maybe it is not just birds, but forms that create space in the sky.  I think this is a theme I will continue to explore.  Maybe, it is the sky I am interested in.  I will find out.

Back to birds…It is interesting how other peoples interests can interest you.  I once worked with a guy who was an honest-to-goodness bird watcher.  Every weekend there would be day trips to find a specific species and at least once a year there was the exotic big trip with the local bird watching club.  I was always fascinated to see his pictures and hear  his stories.  There were always a few pictures that were just stunning.  Anyway, I think I am somewhat interested in birds in terms of form and composition.

    I first thought they were birds on guitar strings– but I guess that wouldn’t make sense.

    This looks like the inspiration of Lisa Lala. Have you heard of her? I absolutely adore her bird pictures and they look similar to yours. Maybe your painting is more affordable than her thousands of dollars per picture?

    Mindy…I haven’t heard of her, but I will look her up. I am curious now. Yeah my paintings are a bit cheaper.

    you should try this style with a monoprint background and another print on top like the Justin Marable silkscreen/monoprint combo’s we saw tonight. i like the contrast here!
