View Full Version : Another Prototype..."Night Bird"

04-22-2007, 10:40 PM
I'm back for my weekly hogging...hope you all aren't sick of me yet!! Here is a prototype for a bird series I am working on. This one represents a magical bird sitting on top of the moon and singing his little heart out! Again, mixed media wings (I LOVE these things! I might actually have an unhealthy obsession with making them, but they are soooooooo meditative to make!). In person, the tone of his wings match his body really really well, but they do shift when the light hits them in certain ways, so it was hard to capture that with the pictures. I look forward to hearing what you all think! I'm having a great time getting all these guys out of my sketchbook and into glass!!





Thanks so much for taking a look!! :D

Absolutely stunning. The mixed media wings are wonderous. WOW! What color variations and how they make the mind travel through the whole piece. Slap yourself on the back for me! Great job.

Cool Pipyr....are the wings glass? Sometimes he reminds me of the little birds in the nest waiting for dinner. :)
