Little birds


Inspired by antique daguerreotypes, I painted quirky bird portraits
on "upcycled" denim for a rustic Americana feel. The denim is mounted to
cedar fence board scraps that I 'reclaimed' from a neighbor. 
The vintage beer cans came from an estate sale of an avid breweriana collector
(who I can only hope is not rolling in his grave!)
Each bottle cap has been pounded flat by hand, burned in the fire
and sanded for just the right patina.
5.5 x 6.5 each

Yeah . . . I put a bird on it!

  1. Very nice! Real creative use of "upcycled" materials. Quirky mixed media, I especially love the use of the old beer cans (although I hope no beer can collectors see this--it might trouble them!).

    I wish I could be at the gallery opening with you. Have a Happy Turkey Day! REVms
