b is for bluebird

new paintings....small 4"x4" canvas (wide edge)...sweet bluebirds, painted,collaged and painted some more. a few reasons for the bird motif....the kids are flying the nest, heading out and about there, lovely but bittersweet...i am actually thinking of getting a bluebird tattoo which got me sketching and painting...had a moment of thinking hmmmm wonder what you need to learn to be a tattoo artist....that would certainly be a career change...also, at a fabulous antique store i saw a paint-by-number painting from the early 50's...there is something about those quirky little scenes that brings back pure nostalgia, i tried to capture that paint-by-number vibe with these paintings....bluebirds!!!
also....some VERY exciting news is that i will be an instructor at the Cloth Paper Scissors Create art retreat in August!!! more on this exciting artful bliss fest soon....with links and info to follow!
