Hummingbird with Abstract

Click to Bid,   8 by 10 inches,  Mixed media on acid free illustration board
The abstract background was done with Spectra art tissue.  The tissue bleeds color when moistened.
After the wet tissue is applied to the surface it  is removed leaving behind the mixed colors.  The hummingbird and flower were painted using acrylic paint.  The paint was applied with airbrush.

Keep Out

The background in this painting is an antique children's tray.  I purchased it recently at an area flea market.
The tray is similar to another tray used in a previous painting. This trompe-loeil is another in the "3-D meets 2-D" series.
