Country Singer

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.


  1. Love the texture in this painting and the contrast between the bird and the background.

    1. Thanks, Barb! I enjoy creating the texture, and try not to get to carried away! LOL

  2. Love it, Patty! I adore all your collages. You really are a talent with them.

  3. Love the colors and the style. Great job Patty.
