Real Bird

Real Bird, 8 x 16, mixed media w/acrylic on canvas
Elizabeth W. Seaver

Please enlarge the image to see the details.  I sewed around the painted patches, and the eye is a button.

The idea for this painting was fueled by my belief that it is love which makes us real--love that we give and love that we receive in communities, families and relationships.  Check out The Velveteen Rabbit, by Margery Williams, for my literary inspiration.
