|Scrub Jay acrylic on cradled panel 8" x 8"|
I have watched and admired birds for as long as I can remember. When I was in high school I had to stay at home after a minor foot surgery. We had a pair of binoculars and I noticed something out the window. It was a scrub jay! I was blown away by his beauty and antics. Now that I am hearing about the loss of so many birds around the world I am so saddened. So I decided to paint a series of paintings of my favorite birds.
I have been exploring gelli plate printing and mono printing lately, so decided to see if I could combine my love of birds with the fun of this kind of printing. This is an 8" x 8" cradled wood panel which I had a lot of fun pouncing acrylic paint colors with sponges, stamps and foam stamps which I made myself. I then painted this Scrub Jay and traced around the leaves. I then painted the negative space around the leaves with white acrylic paint. It seemed too plain so I filled in the bottom spaces with stripes and dots here and there. I am pleased with the way it turned out. Available on my Daily Paintworks Website $150 + shipping & tax
