Free Your Bird

Over at Mixed media monday the challenge is to stretch yourself and produce a piece of art in the opposite size to your norm. I've been doing Atc's and postcards, teerified of the large blank canvases waiting in the corner :) so here's my biggest piece so far - it's about 40 cm X 55 cm.
I'm really happy with how it's turned out and I think I'm not scared of blank canvas any more :)

Media Used
Gouache, acrylic, pen & ink. Vintage paper.

This is gorgeous! Love the colors, the collage, the bird - so lush. (Yes, I have that phobia, too.... to think I used to do 12x12 scrapbook pages! But canvas is scarier, LOL!)
