This 2d mixed media artwork is created with multiple layers. The 10” x 10” canvas is wrapped with black velvet ribbon around the edges of the 2” deep canvas. The background is white fabric with a black, graphic print. The fabric is sealed for water-resistance. The indigo bunting’s wings and beak are collage and the remainder of the bird is created with acrylic paint. The branch, which wraps over the velvet ribbon edge, is created with 3 types of handmade paper and is layered with mica flakes to add a bit of sparkle.
I love the color of this bird. It's strong color is a wonderful contrast to its petite size.
