Found Art Tues. Topic for 11-28-06

The Topic this week was Button. Tough topic, I thought, because my mind just wasn't that creative over the Thanksgiving Holiday. I found a red button that "spoke" to me. And here is the work, called "Redeye." It is in a bookmark format again. I used bits and pieces of papers that have been littering my workspace forever! Just cut them up and began to adhere them using Talbot's method. The bird was and drawn on a catalog page. Acrylic paints and media were also use to lend texture.

Since my 11 year old daughter has a dentist appt. tonight, I thought that would be a good place to leave the work. The reception area is large and it should be easy to leave it without getting caught!

Hee-hee, I like it - and I am also delighted that a journey to the dentist will be a pleasurable experience for some lucky person.

Kathy, I love the texture of the bird! for a second I thought it was real fabric and then I read it's from a magazine, I really like how it works with the layers in the background
