I love photographing bird life. When I visited my parents in Florida earlier this year I ended up with dozens of shots of a reddish egret doing his "canopy dance". This is just how they move when they are feeding. It is graceful and beautiful and a wonder to behold.
As usual, I am trying to kill two birds (not literally!) with one stone. I am giving a presentation on using soy wax in your work to my art quilt group this month and I wanted to create a piece for the challenge using that method.
This piece is not yet quilted but I wanted to offer it up for viewing before the next challenge arrived so here it is. Besides, I am thinking seriously about mounting it unquilted. I am starting to collect a number of bird paintings on fabric that have been finished that way.
Thanks, Linda, for a great challenge!
