Birds, Bees & Blossoms

Joan Game's avatar Joan Game

Birds, Bees & Blossoms features whimsical birds conversing, while bees buzz amidst white and pink blossoms on light green backgrounds. It is a grouping of 9 mixed media pieces, 3 measuring 14"h x 11"w and 6 measuring 11"h x 14"w, each placed in a specific arrangement. Three subgroups of three, are within the large group: birds with the blossoms, bees with blossoms, and the birds and the bees with the blossoms. Each sub-group is visually connected by the branches. Acrylic paint, decorative papers, fabric, plastic, colored pencil, ink, and embroidery floss are used throughout the individual pieces. I began this 14 months ago, and am finishing the embroidery and bees on the last three pieces on the right side of the grouping. In addition, I will add words onto the canvases near the birds to allow people to read the conversation. This grouping began as my own wishing and waiting for warmer and brighter days, filled with sounds and sights of springtime.
