This Magpie is looking for Love!
This mixed media collage is constructed on a 12 x 12 inch (1 3/4 inch thick) wooden cradle board.
The magpie is created from paint, and beautiful paper that is hand cut into individual feathers. It is adorned with upcycled jewelry (silver and a 'turquoise' type stone) and faux diamonds! The heart it is holding is a silver heart that I filled with red resin, and it is dangling by a string!
This bird is an optimist and hopes to find a new home soon! The magpie is known as a collector, and I relate to it's ability to see potential in every object and situation! Here, the bird is showing us the ultimate thing, that is worth hanging on to!
The artwork is covered in two layers of Art Resin. This resin seals in the collage nicely while also illuminating the textures and colours below. Not only does it provide a beautiful high gloss finish, it is also highly durable. Resined artwork can be hung in rooms with higher humidity like kitchens and bathrooms. The surface can be wiped/dusted with a soft cloth and gentle glass cleaner.
The price includes shipping within Canada and the U.S. If outside these countries, extra shipping fees will be required. Thank you!
