New bird... oil and collage.  Size 8x8 on a gessoed cradled board.   The striped backgound is an old piece of wallpaper I found in my collage material.  The color of the stripes are slightly more pink, but I couldn't get the camera to get the color right. Another reason I am not too happy with my fairly new Canon camera..UGH!  I even spoke to the Canon customer service person, who I felt knew less than I did about the color issue.

CHICKADEE oil painting and collage

"CHICKADEE" ($100.)
Not the greatest photo of this little Chickadee I painted.  Another great bird that comes to the  feeder hanging outside my studio window.  The bottom of the oil painting is done in collage.  It's of a group of Zinnias that I took a photo of and manipulated in a photo digital program.  I have been trying to incorporate more of my photos in the collages I do, rather then just using parts of magazine pages. It's done on an 8"x8" cradled board.
