folk art inspiration

I haven't done any kind of folk art/primitive painting since the mid 80's.  Back then, I did a lot of tole painting and created work in the "country" style.  recently, I took a class with Laurie Meseroll and learned how to create her Mudcakes style paintings. Using her techniques and my love for birds I created this little guy and titled it "unruffled". It contains vintage sheet music, scrapbook paper, fabric, acrylics and mica flakes on a 12"x16" gallery canvas.   

I'll be donating this to the local library fundraiser. thanks Laurie!
