two little birds

 |  February 12, 2009

I created this panel with my six year old niece in mind. It was fun channeling a sweet little girl who loves pink while making this. When I was her age I hated all things pink and girly. Now in my thirties, I am starting to like pink. But more like fuschia or magenta.

mixed media, 6×6 inches

For this piece I used a painting that I created a couple years ago as the starting point. It’s fun to do that sometimes. Take something you’ve done, but then take it in a completely different direction.

Thank you all for your comments about my web site redesign! Still have a lot of work to do on it still, but it’s getting there.

    Mmmm... I like this! Looks to me like balance, gentleness and stability. I guess 'nurture' would be a good word.

    Love this piece Bridgette, especially the handwriting at the bottom. *swoon*

    Your niece will love this, as would any little girl. I guess from the handwriting that she is learning to write.

    This is lovely without being maudlin. The dusty pinks are luscious.

    hi bridgette...this piece gives me the sense of being in the moment and being still in nature. i also feel those birs may begin to chat with one another at any moment...have a great weekend!

    beautiful piece - the primary writing at the bottom gives it a bit a innocence

    Bridgette, I love, love, love the simplicity in your work. It is something I find hard to achieve. All the images with birds and trees seem to evoke such a peaceful feeling. Thank you for sharing them with the world.
