Birdland

At last I've had time to paint a bit. I'd been having withdrawal symptoms! Lots of work on the computer, which is just not the same as lovely, lovely Golden Open Acrylics (my new obsession). Please click for a closer view-- the landscape details are my favorite part.

Acrylic on text (1878 encyclopedia entry "Bird's Eye View") & map on canvas, 8x10"

News Flash! This piece will be in the Visual Art Exchange show "Bird's Eye View" 3-30 October, Raleigh NC. Opening reception 3 October, 6-9pm.

Wow... I just found out this piece won third prize! I'm feeling very lucky lately. Sometimes the magic works!

Wow Leah, that's amazing!
I can't get the enlarge thingy to work which is annoying.
Glad you're enjoying the open acrylics :)

Well goodness, I really wonder what first and second prize were because this one is just so awesome. I'm so liking your work. I like the way you work in collage elements, it gives it all a different more personal touch, more "real", as if it anchors the piece to our everyday lives and yet transcends that to something more fantastic, in a way that we can follow.
