This piece was for my alternative painting mediums... or (something like that) class with shirley Yanover (she is the woman who did those cat sculptures at the entrances to kensington market) ... AWESOME class... LOVED it, favourite of the whole year, totally my cup of tea. Also... she was just really cute and sweet.
I believe this piece is roughly 4 feet by 5 feet? canvas, uv active acrylics, spray paint, granola box + matchstick = buildings, scrap metal scavenged from the metal shop, a black bird lovingly donated by a friend, sticks berries, etc. Hydro poles are made from matchsticks and dowels. Attached everything with fishing line and white glue.
certain details like the hydro lines are hand sewn into the canvas
