Just finished this little piece, called, Hopeful*. I like how the little bird on the fence is looking up at the tail feathers of the bird in the corner- like he's waiting for his turn to take flight...it feels hopeful. I'm sending this over to Cathy Nichols for Found Art Friday. The theme this month was "Everything's Blooming". Even though that's far from the truth in Wisconsin at the moment, I know that spring is right around the corner, so it was nice to have something bright and sunny to think about as I worked. I always think of spring as nature's dress-up party- with all of the colors of the first buds and blooms bringing us out of the grey dreariness of late winter. That's what made me put the little collar on this bird- just needed to dress him up a little. (I don't know why, but I feel like it's a him- even with a little orange ruffle)
Anyway- I really appreciate Cathy hosting Found Art Friday...sometimes it's so busy around here I need an extra motivator, and a fun deadline was just what worked this month. I also can't wait to see what everyone else posts tomorrow!
(* I edited this to change the name of the piece from "Spring is in the Air" to "Hopeful". You'll find that titles are always tough for me to settle on. In this case, I ended up feeling that "Hopeful" just said it all about that little bird.)
