In 2016 I went to Portland and took a class by Susan Schenk about collaging a bird. Well my bird was a rooster. I did this great rooster mounted on a map. The beak was pointed at KeyWest. Well, I loved it -- or so I thought. Bought a new mat and frame, I decided it wasn't quite ready. Well 18 months later I decided to take a chance and altered it.
Well here was the first version.
It looks like the picture I used as a model. Technique was perfect but oh so boring
A little extra red paper, a longer beak and more tail feathers, I have one that is truly loved and framed and on my wall.
I belong to a yahoo group - Swap Shop. Occasionally we do a group swap. One of our members found this great assortment of crates and we all signed up for a piece of the scene. I did the string of cork floats.
