“I have been wanting to…”

That’s the brief for Mixed Media Monday this week… and I have been wanting to finish off this piece, and more importantly, paint an abstract, for ages. As it incorporates both red and blue, I shall also make it my Sunday Stampers entry, though this time, Hels says we don’t actually need to incorporate any stamping – she didn’t!!

I started this wooden panel last summer and lost my way with it. Not sure I found it again, to be honest! I don’t know whether I like this, whether it’s done or how I actually feel about it… One thing’s for sure: It’s a vast improvement on the fairly bland/blank panel it was earlier. There was a little bit of collage on a dull green background, so this is far more colourful.

The texture was there before… but you can never have enough texture, right?

No message, just the Birdie!
