Magical Nature Specimen Mobile


Here is one of two Free-floating Mobiles I have drawn/painted (you see, this is still a bit of an issue for me - I used a paint brush exclusively to render these twigs and leaves and strings, however they don't really look like paintings, do they?). The mobile is made up of little specimens of things you might find outdoors, in nature, and they are all tied together with a fine gossamer thread (my father alerted me to the fact that these threads are more gossamer than twiny or stringish). There is some evidence of gravity in the way the specimens are connected, although nothing's really holding them up. This is the part of magic realism which I enjoy.
