Yesterday, I posted a nice surprise on my Facebook page. I got an email from the Cambridge Art Association telling me my beaded ‘Robin in Snow’ painting sold from the Art Fair! I am thrilled! The show runs until September 1st, so they told me that I can bring in another piece to replace it with! Since most of my works are large, I didn’t have any pieces already complete that would fit in the price-range of $300 or less, so here’s what I did:
Using acrylics, I painted an 8″ x 10″ canvas that I had on hand. I layered several different colours in the same style as my White House painting. Now that my painting is dry, I’m going to stitch my beaded Eastern Bluebird that was previously listed in my Etsy shop to the canvas. I think a natural pine branch will tie the two mediums together quite nicely!
When it is complete, I think I’ll call it Bluebird in New Hampshire, because I love it up there! I have never seen a bluebird in the wild, but if I did, I imagine it would look something like my painting! I think this will be a perfect piece to add to the Art Fair. I hope to deliver it to University Place Gallery next week! What kind of bird or animal should I bead next?? 😀
