Other Than Birds

Besides working on the bird sculptures, I’ve been occupied with a ketuba for an April wedding. Right now, I’m working on the border designs, which are all hand-painted. Here’s a sneak peek!

Little Bird!

Spring must be on the way. Lately, in the morning, I can hear the birds singing! It seems the birds that overwinter here don’t have much to say until the weather improves. I was thinking about the sounds of sunny days when I made this little bird. Sounds like the breeze blowing, children playing, and the ice cream truck driving down the street and playing a tinkly, tinny version of “Have You Ever Gone A’Fishing” on a constant loop. I was also thinking about how some people have personalities like summer days — sunny, positive and colorful. This bird is much smaller than my recent birds. It’s only 2 1/4″ tall.
