bird series - # 5

bird # 5


acrylic on vintage dictionary page


I have enjoyed painting an ongoing fun little series of silly bird paintings/collages.


Above is # 5 is the series that I painted today. These started out as post cards, but I didn't mail the originals and now, well, we'll see where it goes.


Here are the first 4 in the series:


All are acrylic on vintage papers or collage. All are about 4" x 6". I really like painting birds. These are all real birds. I have an old Peterson's field guide of American Birds that I use as my reference. I find that I use birds quite a bit in my art. I am sure there is some deep meaning there but at this late time of the night, I have no energy to figure that all out!
