Is worth two in the bush!
I thought of this proverb as I was creating my acrylic painting:
It is a work in process!
I’m taking an online class called, “Birds on Birds” from Alison O’Donoghue. The class is hosted by Carla Sonheim. Check out Alison’s art on Pinterest – she is amazing!
I started my painting by covering a 11 x 14 cradled birch panel with black gesso. I sketched my design onto the panel and started painting with heavy body acrylics. It took several coats to cover the black. I have a few more layers to add so stay tuned! 😊
Did you know that the origin of this proverb dates back to medieval falconry where a bird in the hand (the falcon) was a valuable asset and certainly worth more than two in the bush (the prey).
Happy Creating! 😄
