The Bird of Mystery is an acrylic painting that was created by first developing the “ground” or background with layers of acrylic color and pattern. The second stage of the painting was to add shapes in the ground, in this case the crow. The final stage was stenciling another layer of pattern to the bird to continue to add depth and interest to the painting.
Creating portals of light, love, joy, beauty, compassion, hope and gratitude is my lifelong passion and gift for the earth, hence the name of my art business, For the Earth. My mother painted in oils when I was young and encouraged my own drawing, painting and handcrafting in all forms. My father, the photographer, gave me my first camera at age 8. As a result of these loving influences, I am a lifelong student of both mediums. I am grateful to my wonderful Pacific NW painter teachers, Stan Capon and Edi Olson, for training my eye and technique. I hope you will enjoy this image as much as I enjoyed its creation.
