Bird ATCs, Acrylic and Old Paper

Found some little squares of thick card at the dollar store and picked up a few packages. Cut those suckers into ATC sized blanks and then covered them with pages from old hymnals. Some splotches of paint for a background and I was set to paint.

Started off with a wee Chickadee and then kept painting feathery dudes all day.

Pretty happy with most of them. My favorite is the little Wren who looks completely pissed off and reminds me of the one who lives in my garden and tells me off at every opportunity.

These are beautiful! Your painting skills are fabulous! Using sheet music as part of the background is so perfectly appropriate, too. I love these!

Beautiful. Birds are such a lovely motif and there is so much variety. The red winged black bird is one of my favorites.

The birds are fantastic in and of themselves, and then having them paired with that background, done with utterly perfect words and phrases…so lovely.

Every last one of these is absolutely lovely. Your robin reminds me of the male who keeps giving me the stink eye when I dare sit on my own balcony over which he and his mate have decided to start their family.
