Title: The Cardinal, 2D Mixed Media/Collage
My artwork is of a cardinal. I started this piece in the middle of our cold Minnesotan winter. I wanted to do a bird to remind people that spring is coming. I chose a cardinal because this piece is for my aunt and she loves cardinals. This piece is made of rolled magazine paper. I paid close attention to the values in the body to make the bird look round and plump. I chose to use black words on white paper for the background in contrast to the red bird. I glued the rolls on horizontally to add lines and interest. On the contrary the rolls that make up the stick are diagonal to mimic the grain of the wood. I love this piece and the linear qualities of it.
