Birds on a wire....

Hi Everyone!  Happy Wednesday!  I want to share with you a little art project I completed yesterday for my bedroom.  I was sitting at a stop sign yesterday on my way to pick up my parents mail when I looked up and saw birds sitting on the electrical lines.  And it got me thinking of something I could make.  Unfortunately, I forgot to take pictures along the way.   I found three canvases in my stash.  So I decided to make some art for my bedroom.
 I prepped the canvases.  Then painted them sky blue making them lighter at the top and darker at the bottom of the canvas.  Once that dried, I hand painted the wire and the birds in black.
 My bedroom walls are painted blue from below the picture rail and white from the rail up and onto the ceiling.  So these will fit right in.
 It's simple.  But I like them.
And they fit right into my nature and silhouette themes that I've had recently.  I'll get off this kick eventually.  Thanks for stopping by.

Oh and by the way....don't forget to sign up for the Ramsign Giveaway that I'm hosting.  Click here.

  2. I love to see birds on wires! Jamie pointed me in the direction to a video once where a musician used birds on wires to make musical notes and compose a piece. Isn't that cool?
    love your new artwork!
