For the Birds

Spent the day working on this collage...using an old window
frame, a canvas, some old buttons, some beaded board,.....


here's the buttons...I bought a whole sack of them
last year at Round Top Antique Fair out in Texas...

I keep a whole stash of salvaged materials: tin ceiling
beaded board, scrap wood, hinges, door plates, etc....



I just took these yesterday, and decided to incorporate
them in the collage today...no moss grew on these digital
files!




The finished piece is large, 30 x 40. The window
frame is attached to the canvas, which is painted
here and there with a taupe color. I glued the buttons
on last, and I will seal the whole thing tomorrow.
I worked on it outside all afternoon..it was a perfect
day. Welcome Spring!!!
