Big Birds!

Here’s what I’ve been working on lately:  I finished these two birds to be juried for a group show.

They are both large-scale pieces (for me, anyways!). The white bird is about 15″ tall, and the blue one is about 22″. The necks are beaded, but the feathers in the body are made of fabric. On the blue bird, I hand-painted the fabric before making the feathers. I’m happy to say that even though I had problems with the first set of legs I made for the blue bird, it is now standing firmly on its own. It was a pain to figure out how to make that happen, but I’m glad I stuck with it!
