There are two other birds which will be part of this screen which I already have, a goldfinch and a nightengale, and if they are not in the "Whimsies" set, I'll put them there....AFTER A TALL SCOTCH & SODA, OR BEER OR SOMETHING!
I will sit on the porch, drink & WATCH BIRDS!!!
Obviously highly stylized, I feel I am on a tightrope between the birds' natural adorableness and the "cute" word. It's my natural style and my natural balancing act.
Each piece is ACEO size which works for ratio of finished pieces.

Originally I had transferred these images onto polyclay, but once done, I felt they lacked the warmth that canvas/fabric can impart, so redid them on linen/homespun.
The tiles are all bits and pieces cut from a series of medallion tiles I made and then dabbed with several metallic paints to both gild and warm them to enhance the images.
I am so happy to have finally finished this piece. It seems that every bit of it except for the brocade fabric on the body has been done or redone at least twice.

Hubby's middle school trumpet. It has been on my to do list for years, and I had hoped to finish it before the Jazz festival this year, but I didn't meet my deadline.
Glass and stone beads, glitter glass, metalic mirror, mirror....on a mirrored stand.

This is one of those things that has elected to change as it's gone along....frustrated for a time, but hopefully it will be worth it!

Images are on transfer paper, reversed and ready to transfer to clay. I printed an extra for safety, a tiny pair possibly for earrings and medium size for mini boxes and/or a two sided pendant, if I don't tire of these images too soon.
The squares are made from the fabric motifs, which I scanned.
I'm either going to love this or.....not so much.
best viewed large, if you like this sort of thing.
