"Blackbird in my Backyard"
For Earth Day, and Arbor Day this coming Friday, I sewed this miniature wall hanging today. I upcycled a 100% cotton green sweater that had a lot of paint on it... big surprise. The "painting" is an ACEO sized giclee on canvas printed in my art studio. I sewed it onto the back of an imperfect giclee print, (the canvas is unprimed on the back,) and it is finished with some natural twine that I had handy from tying up my paper recycling for tomorrow.
There are a ton of common grackles, (Starling family,) that return to the gigantic white pine behind my house every spring. Boy they are loud, but really neat! A hawk comes around and controls the population naturally, but they keep coming back anyway.
(-: Everyday is Earth Day! :-)
Thanks for viewing!
P.S. My husband and I are about to celebrate our one year anniversary this weekend. We planted a Wollemi Pine tree last year at our zero carbon emission, eco-friendly, Arbor Day wedding!
