This was more of a mixed-media effort than the last couple of projects. I used a piece of stained glass for the background and a paper cutout for the Delaware map. I thought the light from the scanner created an interesting effect on the stained glass with different colors. During this project, I figured out a way to do legible handwriting. The word Delaware was written freehand. I hope you can read it ok. My source photo for drawing the chicken was from: www.statebirds.blogspot.com. The source photo for drawing the flowers was from: www.webclipart.about.com.
This is going to be my last project for awhile. I am re-locating, and I won't have a computer for awhile. I am going to have to go back to drawing the old-fashioned way for the time being. The next bird in the series will be a repeat performer. It will be the state bird of Florida, the Northern Mockingbird, which has already appeared representing Arkansas. I have no idea when or how it will be done. I would now like to thank everybody who has provided support and encouragement for my fledgling art endeavors. They have mainly been family members and other artists. I really appreciate your comments. Until I am on-line again, take care! Art really does save!
