I love the little porcelain chickadee in this painting. It is part of a salt and pepper shaker that I picked up at the local library that runs a rummage sale every Saturday morning. I keep telling myself that I can skip
going but then 10:00 a.m. rolls around and I run over in case I miss something like this that will make an
appearance in one of my paintings. One of these days I will put together another blog with photos of the neat things I've found. They truly are my treasures.
I become so easily distracted when I'm searching for a component. Just looking at the containers of left
over bits from previous projects and collected demos and experiments (like etching for example) and I become mesmerized. It's like opening up a treasure chest and just appreciating the strands of gemstones and pearls (okay snap out of it....what was I looking for?)
