This big bird looks the way it does, because I didn’t have a paint brushes large enough for this size wood. This great piece of scrap board is roughly 5 feet high, and I wanted to paint a large bird on it. I really didn’t have any paint brushes in my art supplies to achieve the large brush strokes that I envisioned. That’s when I found a really old trash broom that I had once used to clean out the trunk of my car. This broom turned out to be the perfect tool for creating the loose, gestural, abstract line quality of today’s Bird-A-Day art.
