Tree Swallow by Jenny & Atlanta Carrera

Jenny was teaching me how to do collage art (an art style that she learned from her art teacher, Elizabeth Singletary, during the Cape Fear Academy ACE and Summer Camp programs).  We created this joint piece together on a 16 x 20 canvas.   Jenny did the collage for the Tree Swallow from an outline which I sketched.  She also did the collage of the brown tree branch, part of the sky and sun, and some of the leaves.  I assembled the flowers from petals she cut for me. I then finished the background, the black tree branches, and added the bird's nest.  So proud of our joint art piece and my first collage!

Simplicity Within Confusion

Light Among the Thorns
Sunrise over a Mountain of Fog

Glory in Winter
Blooms in a Tangled Vine

Floating in the Seaweed

Partnership in Caregiving

Forget-Me-Nots in Bloom

Light Within the Petals

Purple Flowers

Focus on One Flower

Fishy, Fishy in a Sea Anemone
Dream Catcher of Wishes

Hidden Blossoms
Detached Pride of the Peacock
Lost Balloons

Scattering of Flowered Branches
