This little wren looks like he has had too much Post-Xmas food, all puffed up and so so chubby!
Painted on silk and embellished with fabric, yarn, & beads, I made this little bird on a very hot hot day here in Dungog. With a few days of 43degrees celcius in the shade all the local birds disappeared from sight, until early evening when tiny blue wrens fluttered through our camellia trees searching for dinner treats. Such beautiful creatures they are. My little wren image has become a fabric postcard, allowing a personal hand written message on the back, before it takes flight.
