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:
That bird still looks pretty serene to me…
