Day 167. Tree Trash Bird

Last week I cleared off a lot of broken tree branches from the roof of our home. Today, I was inspired to get creative with the large pile of tree branches, waiting for the monthly brush pickup. There was just something about the way the dried-up leaves and branches looked, that reminded me of feathers. It could just be – birds on the brain again. Either way, today’s Bird-A-Day art made me smile. Enjoy.

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.
