I recently updated the art above our home office area with these black and white isolated images of birds.
I was inspired by my four year old’s obsession with birds. We have to identify every bird we see — or imagine we see. I have to guess what bird he is by verbal clues, as well as caws and bird-like walking. We talk a lot about birds. It seems to be rubbing off on me.
It used to look like this, but as I slowly continue decorating our house, I found that the colors in my DIY art weren’t quite meshing like I thought they would. Plus, I can’t just ever leave something be. What’s the fun in that?
As we live in Florida, I chose Florida birds. There are so many beautiful birds here, it was difficult to choose. I ended up buying stock photos of a flamingo, egret, and blue heron. I converted them to black and white and printed them at Costco (20×30 inches).
