two tree swallows, papercut

    Newer Older

    A commission that stands out as a first for me -- for a wedding invitation! I was extremely flattered to see someone who had enough faith in me to make them something for that day. The party even said I could do whatever I wanted, they trustd me and my work that much! Let me tell you, that is a trusting party. So, putting aside the thoughts of death and cruelty for the moment, i focused on these little tree swallows. There are a lot of them around my area, and I have always enjoyed watching them fly all around.
    Measures 9 1/2" x 6 1/8". (in a private collection)

      you put aside death and cruelty ... but in small, the pine cones and the whole made me think it was a snake mouth with something inside being swallowed.
      i have to put aside death and cruelty as well !

      Hi Will,

      My website is suposed to be finished by the end of Feb (we'll see...). I'll send you the link as soon as it is done. The work is much more commercial, of course, and not nearly as gorgeous or personal for that reason.
      See you around - do let me know of any openings as Mike and I would like to come.
      Have great holidays! - T
