Arnold's Birdhouse by ursulav Arnold's Birdhouse by ursulav
I had doodled Arnold, and felt he needed a home.

Put this together from clayboard and foamcore wrapped in rice paper–coat the back in ultra heavy gel, and it becomes surprisingly sturdy!–covered with various papers and random bits. 5 x 7.5, mixed media assemblage schtuff.

Original for sale–-drop a line if interested–-and of course, prints are available at Red Wombat Studio: [link]

I love his personality! And the fact that he *has* a personality is very cool :D The textures and mixture of materials are awesome, very original and dynamic but at the same time cohesive.

my favorite isthe "keep this coupon" found objec,t that was a great find! I wonder if the artwork itself is a sort of coupon. If you buy theo riginal you get a nicequiet home? "Ursula Vernons art - now with magical powers!"

He looks a bit like Libararian Hamster. That same snooty look. :P I'd love to see those two together. Great work as always.

Great line to go with his stern expression. I hope I look half that stern when people natter at me when I'm trying to read. Probably not. He'd shut them up!

Keep this coupon, or Arnold shall be displeased. He may not like fuss, but he will make a terrible one if you don't keep the coupon.

I love the stern "leave me alone" look on Arnold's face. He just wants a quiet place to read! Is that too much to ask? Cheeky starlings!
