Of course I had to spend some time in the studio this weekend even though I was trying to take it easy because of the heat. With my two fans going, it wasn't too bad, but I had to leave by the afternoon when the sun came over the top of the building and moved toward my side.
I enjoyed sitting in my easy chair at the studio with my feet up early this morning as I sipped my coffee and read Daniella Woolf's Encaustic With a Textile Sensibility. What a wonderful collection of artists she has included in this book! I found it really inspiring.
Here's another whopper that Bonnie found in a birdbox. It's a house sparrow's nest that contained four eggs.
It filled absolutely every part of the box's interior. You can see how hard they must have worked to find all the great feathers, including a few cardinal feathers for color.
This shot is looking into the interior of the nest where the eggs were laid. It is lined with the kind of crinkly plastic that covers cigarette packs. Pretty clever and certainly three dimensional.
