|Wise Old Screech Owl|
Here is my "Bark Art" that I have been having fun with
and will show locally at the open studio days at my studio building.
We are known as The Loveland Artist Studios on Main.
That is Main Street if your wondering.
Our little towne is small
but what they call a bedroom city for Cincinnati,
which isn't far away.
Lots of young families and old timers
that have lived here all their life and love it in Loveland.
We are a growing hotbed of artists.
Loveland celebrates our creativity
during a big art fair in our town park
called Nesbit Park,
right along the Little Miami River
and the famous Loveland Bike Trail.
It is always held in September.
This is a one by five cedar rough cut board
an owl shape loosely drawn on
this is my owl cardboard cut out I use
This is some of the tree bark
I found in the woods
It has been dried
and coated with wood glue
on the back for strength.
a view of some of the birds
This is a smaller piece of bark
that I will use as a base
because it is flat on the bottom
and otherwise not too great looking
Now I " Liquid Nails"
glue it together
to get a stable,
pretty, interesting bark
for adding anything to now.
I can add a clay flower
and one of my little wooden painted
|These are a cute pair of gold-finch |
and some purple pansies.
Thanks for checking out the "Bark Art"
come back soon Nature Lovers
