Creativity during Covid
The Bird Tree
Even Covid couldn't stop this project which was partly created remotely and then assembled outside. The result is as original as Fletcher himself and I couldn't be more proud of all the hard work and long hours he put into this twelve-bird-and-medium masterpiece that is now finally complete.
I love how Camilla adds her own voice to a subject and uses her imagination, as in these portraits. What is the character thinking, saying or feeling? Learning their expressions and getting to know them through the medium is half the fun. Other subjects she tackled this summer include pet portraits in several different mediums, gem and landscape paintings on canvas and clay sushi! Also, Camilla's generous spirit and sense of humor truly shine when we need them most.
Keep on Creating, no matter what,Ms. Knight
For her pen and ink illustration, Reyha methodically layered the mediums and then cropped the work to frame her composition. For her acrylic painting on canvas, Reyha created a rich neutral tint instead of using black paint, which adds a softness to the palette while harmonizing the contrasts of the design. I'm so proud of her hard work and can't wait to see what Reyha invents next in the art studio!
Art On,Ms. Knight
I love the way he added the rays of color around the wheel, and that Gavin's knowledge of birds is an endless source of inspiration. Having worked with Gavin on his art at Blue Heron Nature Preserve and Georgia Audubon, I can attest that he is an avid naturalist and birder. In fact, last fall Gavin became the youngest Master Birder EVER with Georgia Audubon!! As an e-bird expert, he certainly helps me live the mantra, "We learn most when we're teaching." I'm excited about the fresh two and three dimensional ornithological projects Gavin is tackling this year, especially his Middle Years Project which is an illustrated Bird Field Guide of Blue Heron Nature Preserve. Now you can purchase the Field Guide here. Bird On,Ms. Knight
