Day 23. Tree Branch Bird

23 Jan


Today’s bird-a-day art was inspired by the rows of bare trees along the winter horizon. I find the winter treescapes beautiful. This was a really fun one to make. For starters I got to stroll around my local park and collect fallen tree branches as parents looked on as if I was going to start a bone fire in the park. I got to use some power tools to trim, cut branches and then drill holes in a 4×4 base. I even had the opportunity to paint! Today’s bird has a lot going on, so it was good that I had most of Sunday to work on it. Because of all the stages and pieces it took me a lot more time than any art that I have made so far. And if you are wondering, yes I did paint both sides of each branch.

TODAY IS MONDAY, so please vote for your favorite bird art of the past week. Thanks.

    Another movie lover. It was fun to work on this one since I could snack a little as I made the bird.
