I visited the marsh again this weekend to restore my spirit a bit. Of course, I was looking for the sandhill crane family, hoping to see how the babies have changed - and just as I was heading back I spotted them, out in the marsh, and caught a picture.
I was also lucky enough to see a pair of glossy ibis, and a beautiful snowy egret.
My last set of canvases for a bit - concentrating on making my dear friend's wedding invitations!
These use image transferred pattern advertisements from vintage magazines (color enhanced with watercolors), napkins, patterns, handmade paper, acrylic paints, and phrases from modern magazines. I'm thrilled with them!
Quickly, in a brief moment between work and sleep, I must post these pictures of two canvases I finished. The bird images are from vintage (1930s) National Geographics given to me by my friend Christy. I have a triptych in the works which has a vintage fashion theme.....using the image transfer technique, so it takes a bit of time.
* I added these to the "Fly" challenge at http://simonsaysstampandshow.blogspot.co.uk/2013/04/challenge-fly.html Wonderful site to browse!
