Original artwork. ‘Water Cooler Gossip" – a fine art mixed media piece depicting birds in a bird bath.
Each bird is hand cut from recycled paper. Colorful strokes of color painted in acrylic paint make up the background. Details include pencil and ink, random found objects and added text.
This companion piece to my "Birds on a Wire," was meant to depict the cruelty and exclusiveness of cliques. The birds have been given human characteristics and they cluster in a bird bath, the equivalent of the water cooler at work. One bird is the subject of gossip and is excluded from the group.
