Robert Burridge - Circus Bird #2
My intentions that morning were to complete a series of small canvas pieces - all 12x12 Birds. My previous bird series had all been black, white, various shades of grey and maybe just a little red for the red winged black birds.
I started off in black and white but just got that urge to push into color. The more color I added, the funner it got! I added collage papers for texture and added even more color.
I didn't want to create a screaming circus wagon of jarring color. I purposefully used my color wheel and chose a color combination that allowed for a vivid, WOW focal point.
The focal point in this series are circus masks on my performing birds!
Original acrylic on canvas, $675 + 25 shipping/handling.
