Art Outside My Head: Fly Hard, Fly Bright

Once again this humble writer attempts to make visual art (art outside my head) using mostly recycled, reclaimed or found items.

My artistic piece this week is titled “Fly Hard, Fly Bright” and is inspired by my fourteen-year-old daughter who does just that.

Materials Used: ¬†One hideous Russian impressionist painting in silver metal frame, (found via my apartment’s give-away table), One large tin ceiling panel ($5 at rebuild center), purple duct tape for matting, various colors of plumbers tape, colored feathers (give-away table), hot glue and glue gun to afix feathers, double sized mounting tape to afix tin over Russian painting.

This piece is a bit more modern than I am usually attracted to, but I quite like the result, particularly the soft feathers against the hard gleaming tin.

Let me know what you think.
