And now for something completely different for Show & Tell Friday

This may come under the category of What was I thinking?! but I thought I'd share this painting with you on Show & Tell Friday. First I will tell you that in my continued effort to reuse/recycle as much as possible in my artwork, I actually used a piece of cardboard to paint this one. Originally, it was going to be a straightforward Wide-eyed family portrait. Then, when I started painting and saw that the corrogated cardboard was showing through. Hmm .. should I continue with the painting or give it up? I decided to just let loose and try something a little different. And thus, we have this 24"x35.5" painting entitled Birds of a Feather. This is my family, left to right: David Robin, Dawn Canary, Greg Sparrow, Zach Bluebird.

Dawn,
You know I love this!! How do you do it?

But as a cat, you had better beware of a certain bird who is apparently on the loose and up to all kinds of trouble. He's dangerous!! And he's now on the Internets!!! Gasp! (Hmmm...how did THAT happen??)

See you in a few more days!
