I guess I musst have birds on the mind, because most of my projects lately have featured them. I'm taking an online class on Experimental Art (see button at the right). It's a lot of fun, and the projects are intended to help us open up to be more creative and playful in our art. Above is a project where we were to play with tracing images. Since I've been (unsuccessfully) trying to draw birds in my backyard journal, I thought it would be fun to trace some birds just to get to know the basic shapes. Then I transferred the images onto some old road maps, cut them out and collaged them.
