As part of I LOVE ART UK (13 women show) i have been invited to exhibit some of my work ad work in the “Spray Your Own Art” section of the stand. I am very pleased to be involved with this local project.. /. i have a bunch of pigeons ready for sale all listed below, as well as whole host of other paintings and prints. I wont be the only person exhibiting so be sure to make your face known and pay us a visit on Sunday 30th June.

If nothing takes your fancy then you can make your own piece of work there and then to take away with you in the “Spray Your Own Art” section. For a single fee you will have your surface, a lot of spray paint and the use of plenty of stencils.. /. Paint your own wooden carved heart, t-shirt or canvas././ Heres a couple of examples i knocked up yesterday, They will of course also be for sale./.

In a couple of months i am going to be moving house./ .

Pigeon Process.. . . ./. ..//.

Today i have been very busy indeed.. ./. ./ Aside from all the other little projects i have going on all over the place, today i decided to document the process of creating a whole batch of Free Art Birds.. . ./.

Phase one.. . / This beautiful piece of hardboard i lifted from a skip last night.. . /. So first i had to see just how many pigeons i could get out of it.. .. 9 is the answer.

Next Chop them up with one of my favorite tools

a circular disk cutter.. . // mm mmm m

And then give them all a quick coat of black.. . Again my

favorite of all colors, And i know the knee jerk response

to that “But its not a color, its a shade!” that may be

in the natural world but when it comes to paint every

single shade / color needs pigment to give it said color,

in my case the color of that pigment is indeed black,

and as i stroke the black paint side to side i am coloring.. . . . /./. Its a color.. . ./.

Phase four, time to get dirty and finger paint .. .. . /.

Finally after the paint is sufficiently dry add the final touches in the form of eyes,beaks and sign off . . ./.

Tomorrow i will post close ups of each one of these little fellows before they go on their individual journeys.. . .. /. Some are going to Portsmouth tomorrow to find new homes, Some are going.. .well im not sure where yet it all depends on who wins the competition tomorrow on Facebook,.I will be running another give away to all those who share and like the links, names drawn from a hat at the end of the week.. . find out more here

And the rest are on a very long journey indeed, they are off to Tel-Aviv to take part in a free art give away in December  and you can find out more about that here.. /.

Free Art Birds// . .. . / ./. // .

Free Art Friday
I’m sure that most of us when walking the streets pay very little attention to our immediate surroundings and the creatures that we share it with. Most of it gets swept past our eyes and shoved off the pavement as we rush to be somewhere we most likely don’t want to be. These free art birds, in a way are much like you. They are somewhere they don’t want to be too, they also want to go home. So if you happen across one of these stray birds, take them in and they will love you always.. .. ../ .. /.//./ .   Find out more on https://www.facebook.com/FreeArtFriday

These little guys went out last week. . . . /./.
