5″ x 9″ Vibrant bird is an assemblage in a new series revolving around the winged. The bird was found at an antique store, for a song. The nest was created from painted nails and metal mesh, and stands on a candle holder.
I relate to this bird at times, being an artist and finding joy and art in what others see as mundane and invisible in their every day lives. That’s not to say my view is superior, far from it! I simply cannot ignore what I see. The nails represent the harsh reality of the world that we often have to deal with. I choose to make the best of it, make a nest of it. I embrace that new box of 64 crayons and pay homage to each color, relishing their scent, feel, vibrancy, and potential.
