Day 23. Tree Branch Bird

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.
