Day 345. Rusting Scratch Bird

10 Dec


This square sheet of steel has sat outside in my yard for several months. I wanted to let mother nature create the foundation for my bird painting. It was a nice surprise to find rusty leaf shapes on my metal canvas. This time, I wanted to experiment with scratching into the metal to form my bird. After painting my burnished bird shape I found the solid white was too sterile.  So I decided to scratch into my painted bird with different materials. It was a real treat collaborating with nature on this one. Enjoy.

    You know what, I’m very much inclined to agree.

    You make a very good point. Scratching on the metal was not the most melodic sound. :-) And what happens next year….????

    I hope your ears are ok… I get the feeling this bird’s chirps aren’t really very musical.

    Your posts are very inspiring. Now that there is less than a month left, I am wondering what will happen once the birds are gone…

Tell me what you think.
