Day 135. Scratch Metal Bird

13 May

After accidentally scratching a sheet of metal, I was inspired to scratch it again, on purpose. Today’s Bird-A-Day art is inspired by the way that metal shines when it gets scratched. I just happen to have a stainless steel scourer pad, left over from another art experiment, which was a perfect tool for scratching in today’s bird. I loved the thin feather like line quality of the wire scratching. This was to fun for just one bird, I will have to revisit this again later. Enjoy.

Day 76, Aluminum Light Wire Bird

Today’s bird art was a happy accident. I was testing out a fun idea of block printing on aluminum instead of paper and just stumbled into today’s Bird-A-Day art. My first surprise was how much I liked the look of printing on a sheet of aluminum. But then when I laid the plate down on the floor in my studio, the lights hit the metal surface and created these beautiful wires of light. I know a gift horse when he walks up and offers me a ride. So I immediately photographed my accidental art to capture my block printed birds, sitting on a wire of light. I only hope that I can keep stumbling into more fun like this. Enjoy.
