In the (HOT) Pink

I was experimenting with a concept a while back, as I tend to do, and it occurred to me that I wanted to do something kinda folksy- but not.

So I decided to try my hand at "primitive" but change it up with color. The result was this little bird sculpt. I used a form based out of random household items and some wire forms for the legs and then built the details up using papier-mâché. Then I painted it in a bold hot pink color. In keeping with the folkart/primitive feel, I didn't add any details to it. It is like a silhouette, if you will.
