Day 245: Catch
“Well, everybody knows that the bird is the word!” 🙂 If you watch too much Family Guy like me, you’ll now be reliving the “Surfin’ Bird” episode in your head for the rest of the day. You’re welcome. But I couldn’t help it. I’m using birds and words. (For those of you who don’t watch Family Guy, I’m referring to liberal use of the abovementioned song by The Trashmen in a particular episode. And if you don’t know that song- do yourself a favor and don’t google it.)
Today’s piece is composed of a frame donated to me by a fellow artist (who, coincidentally uses black and white in her artwork) and some more bird cut-outs from a vintage Spanish/English dictionary. Though “disquietude”, “bridle” and “catch” are all visible amongst other smaller type, “Catch” seemed to stand out the most to me. Instead of layering birds like yesterday, I decided to suspend just a few from thread. This allows them to move with the air of the room and cast shadows. I know it’s simple, but I like that about it.

I was reading the newspaper this morning, and there was no news. News of a certain fowl. Because havent you heard? The bird is the word. Damn you! I am going to have that stuck in my head all day!
Thsi is really cool!
hey! That’s my frame! Didn’t recognize it until you mentioned it! Oh, it makes me so warm and happy to know it’s being used so wonderfully and whimsically! Yay!
