Summer of Color: Red




This week's Summer of Color theme is Red. The black, cream and red background behind the bird in this digital piece is from a paper collage I did for an art journal page some time ago. The bird on a branch is an altered version of a photo I took of a robin at Yellowstone, with my hand-painted pattern superimposed on it.
