A gorgeously textured Ephemera sandpiper painting for the seaside loving art or bird lover.
Let me tell you about Loxley! He's young which explains those super long legs and little body of his. He's full of fun and tricks and likes nothing better than scampering about the shoreline chasing seafoam blowing in the breeze with a piece of flotsam rope trailing from his beak. He watches the activity on the nearby sailing boats and quite fancies himself as the captain, directing proceedings sat on the tiller squawking at the crew to 'sheet in' with a gust of seaspray in his face! One day maybe. Thats the thing about young minds and dreams, anything is possible.
This sandpiper was created using collage elements from old books, maps, music sheets and dressmaking patterns over acrylic paint with a simple word symbolic of friendship. Beautifully textural and feathersome!
How do I name them? Well, the clues are in their makeup! The character of their personality is inspired by their pose and the text or imagery in the fragments of collage paper in their makeup. From there I choose a name which reflects those attributes. It's all a bit of fun really but well worth a closer look at their feathers to see what you can spot and decipher which word has been written.
From the Oceans Apart series which explores the shifting nature of friends & friendships as they flow in and out of your life for a reason or a season.
Acrylic paint & mixed ephemera. Cool blues with contrasting black words and and a selection of vintage maps, books, dress patterns and music sheets. Finished with archival varnish to preserve your artwork from UV rays & dust.
