Collaged Blue Birds in Acrylic and Mixed Media




Finished.
The collaged paper adds texture to the painting.
And in the places where the acrylic paint is just a glaze, the writing on the paper is visible.
I love this effect.
These painting are small, 10 x 10". on gallery wrapped canvas. I always wrap the painting around the sides.







You can see the dictionary pages in this photo while the painting was in process.

Collaged Blue Birds in Acrylic and Mixed Media





My family encouraged me to paint something someone might like. A more traditional subject. 
So I drew some cute bluebirds
But, I couldn't help myself - I collaged the canvas with pages from an old dictionary. 
Keeping an element of collage satisfies my love of glue and paper.  
Just trying something new.
