First, I started with a little birdie collection of 4 small 5x7 pieces. Materials used was acrylic paint, charcoal pencil, stamps, and canvas. One painting also had joint compound involved so that I could play around with some more texture. I posted on Facebook and I had two people that wanted one each. So I'm down to two and have no idea what I will do with them. I actually really enjoyed working small and would love to create a little birdie series. No idea what I would do with them though.
Then I started on a larger long canvas. I got this idea from a couple of hotel paintings I saw in my room when I went did the Kiawah 1/2 marathon. This was all acrylic no other mixed media involved. Each circle involved a lot of layering so it took longer than expected to complete the piece. I also forgot how tedious creating branches can be. I posted this on Facebook and immediately had a friend went it. I hadn't even completed the matching piece yet. So, I went on spent another 3 days completing a similar but not exact matching piece with the intent that they be hung side by side. Once my friend sends me a pic of them side by side I'll add it to this post. They look a little different below only because one was a horrible picture I took at night (I should have known better) and the other was taken in my fluorescent light office. They are actually the same colors and same design.
