PPF new birds and time for my renewal too


blue bird made with palette knife 
and gel medium and acrylics
birds have been carved a bit around the edges
how do you like the new look?


  I glued some cardinals to canvas 
and added tree bark also.






This guy was a hungry visitor to my bird feeder

Hanging on my wall




I am making a bunch of these new style birds for a store called 
Wild Bird Center
in  Ohio
they are having a beer tasting and other fun events on the 25th of this month
and they invited me to bring some art work over.

 working on some nicer stands for them all too

but first this weekend is time for my women's retreat
time to be renewed a bit...  mind and soul

keep me in your thoughts

Pointy Pix said...

these are gorgeous, i love the "shabby chic" look to them. they remind me of a little tealight holder we bought on holiday last week only the bird on that was made out of clay. i really love these. good luck with the sale-i've no doubt these will be hugely popular.
