A Bird of a Different Color
"A Bird of a Different Color" - mixed media on watercolor paper, 15" x 22". Ready to frame.
Back in the studio, playing with new pigments made from toxic waste. That's right - paint from pollution thanks to a Kickstarter project which I was thrilled to help fund. This piece began as an experiment with the pigments, which are fun to mix with paint, water or gesso. I walked away from it overnight, and in the morning there was this bird.
If I've learned nothing else from painting, it is that the paint is always, ALWAYS boss. So I followed the paint (or pigment, in this case). And like the Family Circus comic, when you follow one thing, you start wandering and it leads to another, sometimes unrelated thing, like the "horse of a different color" bit from The Wizard of Oz, which prompted the name for the painting. Hmmm - is there something psychedelic in these pigments? :)
This piece is sold unframed. It will be shipped flat, carefully packaged in mostly repurposed shipping materials.
