ARTISTIC LICENSE

posted by SHELLEY BRUCAR

Fiber Artists Coalition, a group which I am proudly part of, is planning an exhibit based on a poem about blackbirds.  I was going to pass on this one becasue I don’t do birds.  Then I came across a great photo I had taken on Calf Creek Trail in Utah of a very peaceful-looking blackbird in a birch tree with beautiful Calf Creek Falls in the background.

Suddenly, I was inspired and started playing around on the design wall.  As is typical, the finished piece is something of a departure from the photo:

Interesting Color for a Blackbird“Interesting Color for a Blackbird” by Shelley Brucar.  Hand-dyed and screened fabric, machine stitching.

That bird still looks pretty serene to me…
