My Latest Art Work

"Desert Dweller" 

  This assemblage is composed of two tiny hummingbird nests I found in our back yard.  One of them was half started, so I put them one on top of the other.  The "eggs" are beads-the approximate size of real hummingbird eggs.  The red bits are real coral.  The dried rose buds are from a bush in our back yard.   I used twigs from a palm as "antlers".  Placing them near the nest made me think of Georgia O'Keeffe's cow skulls.
  The background is acrylic with pastels.  (I LOVE Panpastels.)
  I'm really pleased with this.
