ON THE SKYROAD






Linking to
"Mix it Monthly" which has the theme "Colourblocking"
to 
"Paint Party Friday"
and to 
"Art Journal Journey" where the theme is, for a second month, "Inspired by the Masters", and as I've always been a huge fan of Mark Rothko's paintings maybe this is my Mark-Rothko-bird tribute.

A wonderful work, full of hope, energy and lightness. The bird seems to enjoy his time, driving outside on Rothkos "colorful bridge"

I wish you much health and creativity for this new year.

Oh, I love this! Such beautiful clean color and the whimsy of the bird, too!

Annie said...

The colorblocking technique is really cool. I like the frosty/icy edges detail. I want to ride through that colorful storm with birdie. That birdie is just the cutest! And look at that adorable whimsical wagon he's riding in! I just want to live in your creative mind. I think it would be the most happiest, funest place to reside!

I love this kind of sky journey:) The sky is so softly colored. The sweet bird is perfect traveller in it. Wonderful art piece, Sheila.

Aww Sheila, he looks very comfty in his cool vehicle driving above the clouds :) I wonder why he didn´t fly himself??? Is he tired or did he forget he has wings?? But why I ask of course he want to move slowly through all these amazing colors and lights he is surrounded by! Now I know ;) Thank you for taking part at Mix It Monthly ♥ Conny

Your little bird on his journey is gorgeous! I love the colourful terrain (in the style of Mark Rothko) over which he travels in his little buggy. He looks a little worried - I wonder why? Hugs!
