Decorative Bird Art In The Works, And More...

I have been busy working on some new birds. 
folk art check-wing birds



I start our with a basic bird shape drawn on a one by five inch pine board
 my guy cuts them all out for me. 
 Then... I get creative with modeling paste, to make texture 
and some times just paints and stain and sand down the edges
 to give a distressed look to some of the birds.

Garden Party Green and Old Barn Red


lots of people like this springy Garden Party Green


stained with a cherry stain to seal the wood
I rather like Barn Red myself

garden stake Robin
Robin Red-Breast on a small stand
Blue bird of Happiness
Who can argue with that!

Oh great, Kat. Now I want the green checked bird! Keep this up and I'll run out of kitchen shelf room with my collection of your birds.

put that green bird and the others on my etsy.com shop! Guess green is the most popular color right now.
