Topic #29--"Birds" Entry

From Fran!:

"I have not tried to do anything with a bird in the past, but I figured that the shape of a bird was something I could probably create with my collage work. I'm fairly happy with the result of this mixed media piece. It's created with handpainted (with acrylic) papers, encaustic wax, and a printed phrase by Maya Angelou, one of my favorite poets and writers. The text reads, "A bird doesn't sing because it has an answer, it sings because it has a song." I think that's such an important point. We all have something to say!"
