bird, crown, izzybeth

Ever since the beginning of memory, I drew, painted, and crafted. As a child, above our family couch was a painting of lush woods and trail leading to a cottage house. I followed the trail with my mind’s eye and invented a family that lived in the cottage. Sometimes I would ”sit“ under a painted tree and imagine the world of the painting. My orientation shifted, I was no longer sitting on the couch, I was under the artfully rendered tree. This was the beginning of a love affair with art.

    Beth this is gorgeous! I love the background and the little details on the bird!

  • Ruthie,
    The visual play of words was fun. Almost like a deck of cards. Diamonds and Kings… Thanks for your support.

    izzybeth you’ve used the paint so well here to create different textures, like the background feel. The ink makes one focus well on this little fellow, who is most adorable. Delightful. ~ Anni :)

  • Anni, Thank you. He was a most serious chap until I placed the crown on him.
