"Birdy On A Perch"

On my previous post, I showed you my two collaged pieces made for an auction at Second Saturday Studio. That happened yesterday. (Both my little bird collages now have new homes and I'm happy about that. And, today, I received a request to make another of the "Birds of a Feather." Cool. Of course, it won't look exactly like the first one because I try to never make two things exactly alike....and then there's also the fact that I might not remember what I did on the first one. I'm pleased, though, that another is wanted.)

The highlight of the day was the children's art auction, we had ten children participate. We were very pleased they wanted to donate the proceeds to the building fund at the Sunshine School. And, also pleased that $660 was raised for the school in this little auction. The kid's art was just priceless...and so cute. We were proud of each of them and, rightly so, I think they were pleased with themselves. It was a great, fun day all around.

The painting shown on this post is a mixed media painting created by my new best artist friend Claire, daughter of Micah. She is eleven years old and already a wonderful artist. And, you know, I had to have this piece for my Bird Nest on the Ground studio....I just love it. She named it "Birdy on a Perch." It is 14" x 18" - LOVE it!! There is no telling what that girl will do next and I hope to be able to watch as she makes more art....and she will. Thank you Claire!!!

What do you think? Isn't this a precious painting? take care out there, pat

Glad you're collages have new homes. It sounds like you had a great day.
