Arting for 365 Day 60: Bird and Nest

Day 60 6/28/12): Bird and Nest

8 x 10″ Ink on Paper

Goal: To create one work of art each day for 365 consecutive days

High temps, fires and crazy smoke are, sadly, all the rage in Colorado right now. -Scary stuff for a lot of folks. I realize I have no place to complain, but on a purely selfish level, I hate the fires and temps because they have really put a damper on my getting outdoors to enjoy nature – one of my favorite things to do.

So last weekend, when I was able to get out in non-burning Encampment, Wyoming, I really soaked it up. I’m pretty certain this may be the reason for the sudden onslaught of nature based stuff I’ve been creating.

Day 60’s piece is a combination of a neat birdhouse my parents had hanging down at their place, and a drawing of a pheasant inspired by a photo I spotted on Canadian Hiking Photography’s blog. I’m pretty darned pleased with this one. I love the more realistic style of the bird juxtaposed to the simpler abstracted branches and nest.

  1. Ha ha! Thank you! And yes, I did. Some of my projects take multiple days to finish though. With those projects I’ll create something small each day to post while I’m working on the larger one – if that makes sense.

I'd love to hear your thoughts. Feel free to post them here.
