th is the 10th birthday of my favorite grandchild, Ianna. I really miss her...she is not only my favorite grandchild, but my favorite art buddy. She always joined me for any new art project! She is such a fast learner...and loves to go teach to someone else (one of her many gifts).
In celebration of her birthday, I am sending her a little something every day this week. The first offering (Monday) is this little "birthday bird". He is made from paper clay with a foil and wire armature. He is gessoed and painted with acrylics, then finished with a clear gloss glaze. He is ready for the party with his fanciful party hat and reminds Ianna that her "10th birthday is almost here!"
The Tuesday offering is a mini "happy birthday collage" on canvas featuring Ianna when she was just 3 years old. Such a cutie!!!
