Birds of a Feather

A few weeks ago my daughter came home with one third of a poster from a school group project. It turns out that all of the members of her group wanted to share a piece of the art they worked on. I liked the sharing-of-the-poster idea. It inspired my latest print which is made up of nine cheerful little tweeting pieces of original art. Kind of like a spin off of the Doors of whatever city posters.

Here's a peek at the 8" x 10" "Birds of a Feather" print which is a cinch to stick in a inexpensive frame or frame with a matte if you choose. In addition, I have posted all nine original birds for sale in my etsy shop. They're ACEO (Art Cards, Editions and Originals) size at 2.5" x 3.5" and come with a signed certificate stating that they belong to the original flock of nine.

These are thick ACEOs. I'm not a delicate painter by any means. Gesso, matte medium, paint, inks, vintage music, designer paper, trim and a feather all stuck to what was an actual playing card. In some of the cards, you can see actually still see the hearts or spades peeking through. I love that. Now I'm off to devote 30 minutes to my photos. I have so fallen off the wagon.
