I picked a theme of birds because they are one of my favorite things. My hubby surprised me with a deluxe 6 chamber bird feeder last year for Christmas and it has brought me nothing but joy. From center clockwise there is a robin, chickadee, hummingbird, yellow finch, female red-bellied woodpecker, cardinal, oriole, and blue jay. There is a nest as a hat and a robin egg as a pendant.
I also added an apple falling from a tree. This is an homage to my family. there are so many truly creative people in my family. I would be blessed and honored to fall from their tree!
I also experimented with pure pigments for the skin. Believe it or not. the skin is made from mingling, cadmium yellow, cadmium orange, and purple. I went with this color scheme because I wanted the foreground to be warm and bright and the background to recede using cool blues and greens.
Overall, I think it’s a fun piece and I will enjoy looking at the birds at my feeder and on my wall!
