Day 62. Oil Spot Bird

2 Mar


When you have birds on the brain you tend to see birds where you might never have noticed them before. Such as when I was out jogging and saw today’s bird. Looking down at the road, I was aware of how the cracks and stains seemed to make shapes in my imagination. But then, this big bird shows up out of nowhere. My guess is someone’s car is running low on oil. The way that this oil dripped, splattered and then trailed slowly down the curb, made me stop in my tracks. Afraid the leaky car would return soon. I ran home a little faster than usual, grabbed my camera and took this picture of what I call a “Found Bird”. It has a beauty all its own, – in a strange, gooey, dirty, grungy sort of way. Enjoy.

Day 30. Paint Spill Bird

30 Jan


Doh! I meant well. Have you ever started to get things organized and clean up after yourself – only to make a bigger mess? No? Alright well, I guess that’s just me. Today’s Bird-A-Day art was inspired by my sincere efforts to get my garage organized after all the bird art projects of the first 30 days. Instead I wound up knocking over a few cans of paint and well… No use crying over spilled latex paint.

IT’S MONDAY. SO REMEMBER TO VOTE. I want to know which bird of the past week is your favorite. Thanks so much.
