Day 345. Rusting Scratch Bird

10 Dec

Rusting-Scratch-Bird

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.
