Day 76, Aluminum Light Wire Bird

16 Mar

Today’s bird art was a happy accident. I was testing out a fun idea of block printing on aluminum instead of paper and just stumbled into today’s Bird-A-Day art. My first surprise was how much I liked the look of printing on a sheet of aluminum. But then when I laid the plate down on the floor in my studio, the lights hit the metal surface and created these beautiful wires of light. I know a gift horse when he walks up and offers me a ride. So I immediately photographed my accidental art to capture my block printed birds, sitting on a wire of light. I only hope that I can keep stumbling into more fun like this. Enjoy.

    That’s a smart way of looking at the world.

    Beautiful photo. That is exactly what inspired many of my birds on wire art.

    I feel that it’s important to do this for myself. I have to be happy. And like you say, if someone else like its, then that’s great.

    That’s awesome! I love it when I like what I do – it’s a total bonus if someone else likes it too!

    That’s so nice of you to say. It’s nearly impossible for me to have a favorite. Each one has something I like in it.

    Although, I’m also very fond of No. 66 – Newspaper Birds. Hard to decide, I actually love them all!

    It’s not the idea but what you make with it that matters. Have fun my friend.

    This looks really beautiful. I might have to steal that idea!

    This is my favorite so far!

    […] It was kinda freaky – an unseasonal storm was rolling in and there was that strange calm in the air.  The birds all eerily congregated on the one section of power lines.  At one point in time there seemed to be millions of birds but some vanished by the time I took the shot.  The end result reminds me of MKD’s Aluminium Light Wire Birds.
