ARTastic - Let your Dreams take Flight

Hi Ladies!

There is a lovely challenge this month at ARTastic challenge blog using this beautiful painted image. You can get to the challenge here

Green Lorikeets by Cathy McClelland

The CRITERIA is to use PAINT on your work.

Here is my page for the challenge called.....

'Let your Dreams Take Flight 

I painted around a cereal bowl with Jo Sonja's  'Burnt Sienna' acrylic paints and plopped it down in the corner, I also painted around the edge of the page and added splatters.
I used this photo not only because it was green (I ran out of ink in my but because it is a photo of Bern and Cin (friends) and Steve and I, feeding Lorikeets at Currumbin Bird Sanctuary in the 80's on a very cold and miserable raining day!

Here is a close up...
 I'm on the right with the Lorikeet perched on my head...

Thanks for a fab 'birdie/paint' challenge Jane and DT girls!
