Birds never cease to fascinate, with their ability to soar above us on the wind currents...Experimenting with Acrylics
This is my experiment with acrylics and collage, I called it "At Peace on the Stream" (8x10 canvas). It was fun to do, but I find it challenging to work with acrylics. I like their thickness, and the texture I can get, but then I miss the fluidity of the watercolors and having them flow across the page... I also used heavily coated fabric to get dimension, and liked the effect of a piece hanging off the left edge. More experimenting to come.
Meanwhile, here are some inspirational photos I used, these I took in the Skagit Valley north of Seattle this past year during the time of the snow geese. They are beautiful to watch, and to listen to their chattering honks.Zen Paintings
I took 5 mintues to enjoy the music of this video and a collection of Zen paintings from Rev. Yao Feng Shakya aka "The Sadmonk". I liked the simple renderings, especially the birds. The music is "Chuang Tzu's Dream" from Karunesh. Hope you enjoy.
