I decided to work on a companion piece to "Puzzled". I had such fun with that one, I thought I'd go the same route again!
You can't drive very far in the country around here without seeing one of these guys. The Red-Winged Blackbird and it's song really says summertime to me. I decided to call this one "Country Singer". The background is covered with old sheet music and the bird and cattails are small pieces of hand painted paper and a few pieces of other found papers.
This and Puzzled will be entered into the Annual Desmond Juried Art Exhibition and Sale this summer.
