Happy Bird

Another little canvas for the Holiday Festival of the Arts... Happy Bird

This is a 3 x 3 x 3/4 inch canvas, that started out with a bit of a 1960s school workbook as the background. A bit of paint, stenciling and collage later, and I think it's done. 


On another note, I was delighted to hear that a location has finally been secured for the Holiday Festival this year... 1200 Meador Ave. in the Haskell Business Center. Yay! Local to Whatcom and Skagit County folks should come check it out. 

Sharing today with Paint Party Friday, hosted by Eva and Kristin! 
If you have time, do check out what the other artists are working on this week.

So great to see how you did this tiny work of art. I love the writing and type from the old school book with just enough beautiful color and little bird on top.
