lil' birdie paintings

I love that in our Art Gypsies group every month there is an example/teaching of what we will create, the supplies provided...and everyone puts their own personal spin on their own. Isn't that what art is? It's a personal expression, a feeling, a flow, and a creative endeavor of our very own. It can come through all different ways of inspiration.

Here are some cutie birds that we did on a 12x24 gallery-wrapped canvas.
Some went just with paint and a paintbrush, some went with adding some dimension.

Some went with paper and abstract free flowing paint.

Some went with stamps and distressing.

Some with color.

All in all, a great art group session.
