Last night I finished another wall hanging to donate to Art Now for Autism. If you’re an artist, please consider making a piece to donate. If you’re not, it’s a great opportunity to acquire something wonderful and help a great cause at the same time. The preview starts October 1st and the reverse auction on the fifth – hope to see you there!
I collaged three 5″ canvases with images of birds wearing crowns, various papers and paints. The canvases are mounted on an unusual background – ceiling tile! It has a neat texture and takes paint very well, though you have to wet the surface first so that it doesn’t absorb too quickly. The beaded trim is the same I used on my tag wall hanging (see previous post) – I rather love this stuff for adding a bit of sparkle and texture.
I call this “Royal Plumage.” Here’s a close-up of the center canvas. Aren’t these birds the cutest with their little crowns?
