Seagull is finished and has flown away

Never Alone
My finished collage / painting of the seagull is on the right. He has flown away to a new home.  I added a verse (part of a verse) from Joshua 1:9.  As you probably know - seagulls really are rarely along - this guy seems to be but you can bet there are plenty of other gulls around on the beach.  I used my new scrunchy wiry brush to get all that paint texture.  Best $2.99 purchase I have made in a while!  I have other works in the "works" - will hopefully get to post on those next week.

I am linking to Paint Party Friday hosted by Eva and Kristin (thanks to you both).  Go and take a peek at all the wonderful work posted there - they are an encouraging group, so enter your own work there - even if you are a brand new artist.  Thanks so much for stopping by - have a blessed and creative day.

  1. Love your seagull, wonderful texture and colours. I saw hundreds of them today, following a tractor ploughing a field by the Rhine, looking for good pickings! Hugs, Valerie

  2. I love your seagull. I am sure someone is happy to have him in their home. I don't see seagulls here much since I am inland, but sometimes they seem to gather in parking lots.

  10. Oh, I just love this painting. The turquoise background is gorgeous, and I love the expression on the bird. Now I'm curious: what on earth is a scrunchy wiry brush ..!?
