with a zig zag stitch along the edges. The canvas was painted blue to bring out the rich color in this male's plumage. Eastern Bluebird is heavily stitched with Superior trilobal polyester thread and rich beautiful colors from Aurifil as well. This piece is Part III of Miniature Naturescape Series following Finding Your Feet (Red Robin) and Tranquility (Yellow Warbler). I am really enjoying this series and still would like to revisit the concept of using the same bird in the first two of the series to recreate Spring and Winter settings. I suppose that will have to wait for another day. Today, I am heading back to the studio to try and finish a large wolf that is part of my Naturescape Grayscale Series. This piece is made of various materials and is very tactile. It also has black Misty Fuse leaves!
