Croquet Ball Art

An artist friend of mine asked me to paint a bird on a vintage croquet ball as part of her bird wall.  I must say painting on a three dimensional surface was definitely a very different experience.

She shared this picture and text online “A beautiful vintage croquet ball painted for me by a fellow artist and friend. I will now add this to my ever growing Bird ball wall! Thank you Amanda for the precious pass-it-forward gift…I just love being involved in this random act of giving…and should I say, receiving!”

Thank you Beka!  Paying it forward is such a fun experience!

It is so fun to see what people are drawn to.  This piece was inspired by another love birds silhouette painting of sparrows in love.  It was fun to play around will my paper scraps and see what this 6 x 6 canvas starts to create.  What a little beauty!
