Cardinal II

10" square
collage with hand painted and found papers on wood cradled panel

It seems appropriate to be using these colors at the start of this new holiday season.  I've been doing a
little calligraphy as well and decided to work them in, in subtle ways.  I'll be taking better photos as these are a tad fuzzy.

8" x 10"
Painted and found paper collage on cradled wood panel

Moving on from chickadees, cardinals have been a joy to work on.  I had been hoarding favourite papers but was determined to actually use them.  Although I have several new ones to post, I returned to this from a previous post to add more branches as it seemed to need a little something more.
