Bird necklace "Freedom"
 I've been busy since getting my strength back after a long 4 months of no desire to create.  
Took a few classes with Chris Cozen and Riki Schumacher at Liz's Loft over the past month or so.  A few things I've done on my own.  "Red Sails" and "Finding Joy" I started in Chris' class and they ended up not looking anything like what it started out to be.  "Red Sails" is abstract which I don't do often because I find it difficult.  I much prefer to work on a subject I can recognize like "Delphine".  I will have them scanned and maybe sell them.
The bird subjects were in Riki's weekend long workshop.  I love taking classes and learning new techniques.  I never get enough...
The little bird in a cage was created around a metal box which opens, perhaps a pill box originally.  It stands about 10" and since I collect odd bird items, this was a perfect addition.
The necklace is large and a bit heavy but definitely makes a statement.  I hung mine on the wall among my bird things.
I'm now taking an online class to learn to paint animals.  I have my four fur babies and I can practice on them.  Watch for them...
