The Cardinal Rules

It’s been too long since I attempted to do anything creative. Yesterday I decided to print out a number of photographs that I had taken of Northern Cardinals. After the usual cutting and arranging I squeezed out the last drops of some spray photo mount and finally started a mixed media collage. Today I went back to some formulaic steps that have been helpful in the past. Although the piece does resemble others I have done, at least I finally did something. Much of my time is spent watching and counting birds. It seemed logical to use some familiar images and hope that creativity would take flight.
