Mid-semester break…wait…what?! Hold the phone, I'm still stuck in week one! I definitely feel like time is moving way faster than I am but time is on a schedule and won't wait on me so I'm doing my best to keep moving forward.
The excitement over the starling is still bubbling which is good fuel. Above is a collage of a tracing I did of the starling and below that is a screen shot of him on the 3D printer. You heard right…this little dude will soon be a 3D image of itself. I love that this work is coming from a very particular bird. Out of the millions of starlings in the world this one specific starling is my reference.
I took a solo field trip to the Botanic Gardens to visit the conservatory which did not disappoint. I was most drawn to the thin panes of glass that separated the plants inside from the space outside. I also fell in love with this blood orange tree on the outskirts of the garden outdoors.
The oil pastel houses I began earlier this year are growing
and another large canvas was started.
And I haven't forgotten about my sparrows which temporarily look like little ghosts...
