Gospel of Birds, mixed media bird painting, ©Kellie Day, 30″ x 40″, available

This painting is a tribute to the delight of the senses provided by the arrival of spring birds. Flitting from branch to branch, puffing up chests and mating like there’s no tomorrow. –  their energy contributes to the beauty of the world.

“Gospel of Birds” is a 30″ x 40″ mixed media painting on canvas. Up close, you can see layers and textures that I built up from collaged papers, and glazes of paints and gels. The branches are made with rich, metallic copper, and lines of gold highlight the flowers and bird art. Pinks, creams and all the colors you’d expect from a summer blossom dance about the canvas. Chinese newspapers and rice papers define the collaged birds, with glazes of smoky blues, and gold embellishments.

This painting will hang in my upcoming art exhibit at Cimarron Coffee Roasters. If you’re in the area, join us for an opening this Friday, May 12, from 5-7pm.
