    Found Art Tuesday March 27, 2007: BIRD

    bird adentro.jpgWhy did I paint this? I have no idea. Is one of those things that happens when I'm working. I wanted to draw a bird!! I even drew a bird for my new banner! so who is she? why does she has wings? and why is that little bird so lonely? I started doing something different. I drew a bird and then I added the landscape. It's been eons since I had made a landscape, and with trees?? where are these mountains? I never paint mountains.... I think this is why I couldn't finish it. I kept changing things over and over. I erased the first bird I made and drew a different one. I drew some more birds, there were too many, so I starting erasing them one by one, and started drawing a face, then the body, the wings came last. and this is when I felt I was getting somewhere. It feels to me like a "spring" piece. Rebirth, new beginning, hope.

    detalle bird.jpgThis was made on a box I received on the mail, it was something vonage send me telling me how I needed to drop bellsouth and get me some vonage phone service. Instead I turned it into found art. 

    I painted it all blue and then added the mountains. In the back there's a drawing of a tree leaf. (I used a rubber stamp in wet paint) 

    bird afuera.jpgThanks so much to everyone for you comments and support. It's so wonderful to feel I have this little support group of my own where I can talk about things and be understood. thank you all.

    pajaro en mano.jpgI'm planning to leave this in the park this afternoon. The weather has been so nice today!

    This is so beautiful. It would feel like a magical message from the Universe to find this box sitting in the park.
