Day 80. Concrete Bird

19 Mar


Today’s bird art will never be hung in a Gallery. Because today’s Bird-A-Day art was created by scrubbing hard enough to remove layers of old soil off the concrete wall of a warehouse. It took a lot of something my grandma used to call, “elbow grease” to scrub this bird out of the concrete. I love concrete! I love the way its ages. The unique patterns and tones from exposure to the elements. For me it can be more beautiful than a painting. And so today’s bird art is my way of getting into that “concrete canvas”. If you have a beautiful concrete wall, you want to offer as my next canvas, let me know. Enjoy.
