Winter Flurries

Winter Flurries

From Endeavored Art by Nichole

"Winter Flurries"

In my most recent series, I hand painted upcycled glass bottles with birch inspired scenes. Each one is absolutely unique to itself with layers of color building character and dimension.

This bottle which I've entitled "Winter Flurries" is a hand painted piece on an up-cycled oil bottle. The blues and purples of the background remind me of a beautiful winter night and, against them, falls a slight flurry of white flakes. I can imagine taking in chilled air as I listen to the quite of the winter night, hoping to hear the call of an owl.

The birch trees are white, black and blue. Birch trees are a favorite of mine. I find their unique bark to be beautiful and love their resiliency as they often bend to withstand New Hampshire winters without breaking and then green up yet again in the spring giving the chickadees a safe canopy in which to flit branch to branch.

Upcycling and repurposing items to create unique canvases is a passion of mine. I love the practice of extending the life of an item as long as we can particularly when we can give it new life through art.

Layers of blending, stenciling and mark marking lend to a pretty texture you can feel through the paint.

This bottle is approximately 9 inches tall and 2.75 inches wide. It has been top coated with a clear liquid sealer.

This piece should not be washed in a dish washer. If you need to clean it, I would recommend a light wipe with slightly moist napkin or towel. Do not submerge in water.
