Description The original painting of this was an artist trading card (2.5' x 3.5') that I did. I like to use music in my art sometimes because I find it to be very inspirational! This song is 'Love Lifted Me' and is a hymn from a songbook. I used it for the background and then saturated the card with ink. When that dried I painted the bird, branch and noted with acrylic paint.
Penny Pausch, Jonesboro Member Since February 2012 Artist Statement I grew up way back in the hills of Missouri (U.S.). I was a country girl and loved every moment of it. My sister and I did not have many toys and so we played outside on trees and other things in the woods and learned to use our imagination. This has become an asset to me. I knew by the 5th grade that I wanted to be an artist more than anything else. I like to paint, sew, minipulate objects so that they are interesting, cook, and write poetry. One of my goals is to write a poetry book and illustrate it. I recently have gone back to college after 17 years of raising my children.
