Mixed Media Monday - Wings


Here's my small canvas for Mixed Media Monday. The challenge was "things with wings" - an easy topic for me, I thought. I'm a birdwatcher from way back. I used to go out birding and everything!

And wow, I actually used a canvas I had painted a base coat on YEARS ago. No, starting the canvas does NOT make it easier to proceed. In fact, it was taking up room in the cupboard, looking like it was supposed to be kept... I'm so glad it's been turned into something now!

The button tin was out because Jonathan needed gold buttons for a school project - so of course I used a button.

Green Gold, by Golden, is my favourite colour of paint in the whole wide world.
