Day 236. Wood Knot Bird

21 Aug



Finding birds hidden within patterns and objects has become a personal past-time of mine this year. This piece of lumber was sitting in our garage, until I decided to make a really big knot on the side, into today’s Bird-A-Day art. With my handy wood stain marker, it didn’t take much at all to set this little guy free. Is it just me, or does he appear to be floating around in a wood pond. Enjoy.


Day 111. Wood Stain Bird

19 Apr

Always experimenting with new art media and surfaces, today’s Bird-A-Day art was inspired by a cool new find. I found something called a Wood Stain Pen. And it’s basically a marker, filled with wood stains, in all the basic wood colors, used to touch-up of scratches in furniture. I like the way the pen bleeds into the grain of this Balsa wood. Afterwards, I placed this little guy on top of the water fountain in my backyard. The fountain attracts birds. The kind of birds with feathers. I thought my new bird needed company. Enjoy.
