One of the pleasures of being a Whimsical artist is the freedom to explore other flights of fancy. An idea sparks and the chase is on to capture it in wooly goodness. Needle-felting allows incredible detail of shapes, colors, markings. These birds are realistic representations of a House Wren, a Black Capped Chickadee, a Rufous-sided Towhee (still in need of a beak & red eyes), and a Hummingbird snuggled in it’s mossy nest.
The birds are firmly constructed, but still lightweight. Their wired legs may be gently posed, bending slightly, or toes curled to perch on a branch. This means enchanting possibilities for displaying a bird in your home.
Now rest assured….being a Whimsical artist also means that upcoming birds are likely to sprout colorful wooly locks for tails, sport bright striped legs, wear a hat, or sit upon a branch with their knitting in wing.
