Day 66. Newspaper Wire Bird

6 Mar

Image

Newspapers really add to the art as a canvas. I learned that lesson a while back. And today I have combined painting with block printing on my news-canvas. I enjoyed the block printing a lot and thought about adding a little twist to it. So I created several block-cut birds and then printed them on top of my painted paper. It’s got a distinctive look to it that I like. This is something I will have to try again some day. And I am very grateful to my sweetheart for playing Vanna White with today’s Bird-A-Day art. Enjoy.

    Hey! This is kind of off topic but I need some help from an established blog.
    Is it hard to set up your own blog? I’m not very techincal but I can figure things out pretty fast. I’m thinking about making my own but
    I’m not sure where to begin. Do you have any tips or suggestions? Thank you

    I recommend you go visit WordPress.com. They are the standard DIY blog site. WordPress sites are free to start and can be live in one day. From there it is a learning and trial by error experience. Try it.

    Good day! I was curious to know if setting up
    a blog site such your own: http://mkdickerson.com/2012/03/06/day-66-newspaper-wire-bird/ is hard to
    do for inexperienced people? I have been hoping to create my own website for a
    while now but have been turned off because I’ve always believed it required tons of work. What do you think? Thank you

    I’m serious too – I REALLY like it! So simple yet effective.

    I have been toying with the idea of newspaper to use in conjunction with canvas and paint. My idea is a little different to yours but you’ve refreshed my desire to give it a go! So thanks – this blogging thing is turning out way better than I expected!

    You’re welcome and very worthy. I see bird art everywhere I go now which causes me to think of your blog! You’ve also inspired an upcoming post I’m planning too :)
