Got any birds on a wire?

Measuring time by the music we sing

I am not a one-trick pony. I can do three of them now: Wine bottle vases, clay tiles, and now, creating a picture collage. Granted, R said, “What is it?” and I replied, “What do you see?” He is a little concrete when it comes to certain things.

A ruler. What’s the wire for? Where did you get that wood?

That led to an explanation of what I had done and why. It is not rocket science, nor rocket art for that matter. Although sometimes I just make stuff up in my head, generally, it is inspired by something I have seen, albeit I tend to adapt because I am just not that skilled to recreate the Masters. This process led to my showing him the piece I had seen on Pinterest, and the process of adapting. Let’s just say it included these two parts of the explanation:

“I like the colored birds better. Do you want some more of those plaques? I have a stack of them I brought home from my office.”

Sure…I will make one for you with the colored birds.

“But what’s the wire for?”

I see ya’ll every time I go out the door!

Anyone want to weigh in on the purpose of the wire? I’m sure R will want your take on it!

  1. I’m stuck here (laughing): “He is a little concrete when it comes to certain things.” I’ll have to borrow that one sometime. I like the collage. where did you hang it?

    The colored birds are nice, but the birds cut from newspaper seem a bit more resourceful. In any case, it’s a nice ensemble.

  3. Comment #2: I’ll admit to studying your collage for clues. I feel like I will have an “AHA” moment once I figure out the meaning and relationship of all the items, including the wire. I started with “No. 505” and, of course, my mind wanders everywhere from the Etch-A-Sketch to the beard oil.

  4. It seems like a high wire, and I’m afraid of falling.

  5. The first thing I thought of was “Bird on a Wire” – a movie, I think. And for some reason the whole thing seemed familiar, like on a travel diary. Oh, well, I like it!

      Thank you–I am not sure it has a purpose of meaning. I just know what I thought when I saw it. I don’t think I ever saw Bird on a Wire, though I recall the name of the movie. Hmmm…travel diary. I like that connection, although I have not done much traveling of late, unless going to the grocery store counts…but it does not usually require a travel diary entry.

    I LOVE it!!! When I first looked at it, I thought, ‘the wire doesn’t need a purpose” it’s just art details. But, then when I looked at it again, it resembles a window frame, like I’m looking out a window and seeing birds outside. Pretty cool.

  7. I love the newspaper birds. And, of course, the wire is for the birds to land on.
