Continuing with my “Home on the Range” series in which I acknowledge the diversity and beauty of my home state of Kansas, I had to include the state bird. The Meadowlark is such a cheery little bird with its yellow breast and cheerful song, especially in the spring time. It’s tell take black V makes it easy to identify even for a bird watching novice like me.
The few times I have spotted a meadowlark have been on the edge of a wheat field, so it seemed fitting for the meadowlark in my artwork to find its home against a backdrop created by using my own wheat stencil and Citra Solv to alter the strips of National Geographic pages that I adhered to an 8 x 10 inch cradled wood panel.
