My entry into the Global Talent Search 2014 run by the Lilla Rogers Studio - Terrarium theme

The brief for the Lilla Rogers Global Talent Search 2014 was to create a piece of work with a terrarium theme for wall art - either for adults or children. 

I chose to do something for children - but I've put it on my wall for now :)

I painted this on a 40cm x 50 cm canvas and painted the bird, cotton reel and type on brown paper and carefully cut them out with scissors, gluing them on. The whole thing took about 3 days if you include the scribbly sketches of other ideas and pondering time  - probably 2 working days painting.

It would be wonderful to have the chance to challenge myself doing the second brief as part of the 50 selected from the 999 entries ... but I trying not to hope too much as I've seen lots of amazing entries in various places on the web. Whatever happens I loved making it and my daughter wants the original! 

We have to wait until the 26th of August to find out whose work was chosen. Tenterhooks.

Update: Sadly I didn't make the next stage but there are some wonderful wonderful works that did - you can see them all here.
