The Bluebird Comes


Since I was feeling quite unsure about how to proceed with my little triplets (see last post), I decided to dive into some collage! I had a canvas that I had painted and didn't like, so I started covering it with all kinds of goodies. If you click on the picture, I think you can see it better. It started with the dot paper, and then I added a page out of a very old book (circa 1911). I love the look of these pages - the chapter title is at the top of the page "The Coming of the Bluebird". So, that ended up inspiring the rest of the piece.

I started another one today, and painted some more papers. I'm thinking that I like this medium!

Nancy leave it to you to make something out of something! Now you know why I love this kind of paper work? Its a wonderful medium and you've done great! I've had problems with commenting on other blogs and changed to Firefox, and Voila! I'm back in business. ! BJ

I love that you picked up the title of the chapter to inspire your piece. That maps look fabulous on this page (if I'm seeing right). I love that!
