Thread Painting

Friday I finished this piece, titled "Northern Cardinal".  The 2nd in a series of birds of the seasons.

The actual photo was taken by Dave Gigliotti,  a wonderful photographer from Harford Maryland.  I  was viewing web images and found his photo, which led me to his site Shuttermonkey.  I sent him an email requesting to use his photo for an oil painting and fiber art.  I was thrilled when he replied, yes & send me a picture so he could see my version.  Now, I'm starting on the painting, which will take a little longer than 2 days.  A big thank you goes out to Dave for giving his authorization to use his work.  If you're in the Harford Maryland area and need a photographer, by all means look at his work.

Life is a journey, roll down the window and enjoy the breeze! Have a blessed day!
