I finally got the wing appliqued to the quilt. I hand sewed it along the edges and it is very secure. I still need to put a hanging sleeve and label on the back…maybe next week! I need to move on to another project to satisfy my desire to create…I’ve got the urge to do a painting.
Now that you see the two parts together, you can answer the question I posed in my previous post. Is the nest falling into the flames and the mother bird leaving, or is she trying to fan the flames and protect her young? I can still see it both ways…therefore, no title yet…still conflicted…from the studio
I wasn’t sure how I felt about those feathers but seeing them in the context for which they were meant, I love them.
I love the piece!
Knowing how honest you are in evaluating art, I am truly delighted by your comment…thank you so much. Sue
What a beautiful piece! I think she’s protecting her young….I love the feathers. This may be my new favorite.
Thank you. It’s one of my favorites also…at least until the next one!
She’s got to be protecting her babies. I love this piece.
Thanks, Ginny. I wonder if it is just our maternal instinct wanting to portray protection, not the more difficult decision to leave.
Protection. This is a stunningly beautiful piece. I am in awe.
Thanks so much. With fire season just around the corner, I wonder what will be protected and what will be abandoned. I guess you don’t know until the moment you have to make the decision. Sue
Sorry, but now that you mentioned it – to me, it looks like she’s leaving them behind…
Don’t be sorry…sometimes it’s a necessary choice of survival.
Fanning flames makes them bigger. Everyone who has a fireplace knows that… 😦
