The Talk

I decided that I wanted a piece of artwork that I saw in Pier One -- except it was too large for the place I wanted to put it.  So, I kind of copied it, in a size that would work.  I usually don't try to do this, and I would list the artist's name, but I can't find it on the photo that I took.  Oh well, it's not going on sale, and it's for my private use, so I hope my apology will be enough.  And, of course, it really isn't exactly  like the original.

I started with collaging, of course!  I love the way it always adds texture and shadows.

Then, I added white, ecru and blue paint to distress the collage.

Next, I worked on the Mama and Baby Birds.

And, played with it some more, and added distress ink around the
edges.  I think it worked out fine!  Now I need to hang it!

Perfection, Nancy! Quite a spring-y and fresh piece!
