Bird challenge

TRACES close view

Birds - they wake me in the morning, I see them fly by or sit on a roof or a tree. Or I see their traces. 
I have taken a picture at Lake Erie of bird's footsteps on the beach. That was my starting point for this challenge. 
I took monoprinted fabrics and made a collage. Normally, I love working with strong colors so it was an additional challenge to stay in black and white - more or less! 


Unfortunately, the colors don't show well.


  1. J'aime bien cette légèreté exprimée par cette gamme de gris comme les traces qui en sont juste la ponctuation

  2. I really like this piece. It's very subtle.

  3. Heidi,
    I really like this piece. The subtlety of the colors made me take the time to look closer (good thing). Recently I was walking along the Atlantic Ocean in Florida, I always photograph the birds footprints and this reminded me of the peace I felt that day. Very nice.

  4. Heidi, you do lovely work. I love the feather and the mystery of the whole thing. Great job. Little footprints in the sand........

  5. Thats very good artistic my fren.
    please vi$it n ki$$ me back ;) ;) ;)
