Resurected work # 2

I worked on this scene and changed a couple of colors as well. I think I will do a bit more embroidery and beading and another reed to hide his tail trimming. He's not stuck down yet so I can change his position, if I want to.

Andrea asked if I could show what it was before my alteration.
I liked it then............this was before I mucked up his beak or did much sewing and made it into a huge ugly thing, so...............

I cut him out of the picture and re-adjusted his beak (sent him to the plastic surgeon) and now I will applique him back onto the piece. Of course the piece is much smaller than it was and I couldn't fix his beak as it was - AGAIN - so had a brainstorm and just trimmed him out of the section I removed from the center.
I also changed the colors of two reeds and the main color of the cat tail. Now I can at least finish it. :)


  1. Ahhhhh, thank you! I think the size change has made for a much stronger composition. Brainstorms are good aren't they? Had one myself yesterday and am very pleased with the direction that one particular thought has sent me!

  2. I like where you're going with this, Carol. Hope you'll share the finished piece!
