I can finally show you this piece ( it was a surprise commission by a lady for her husband's birthday) he was delighted, (these birds have long been a collectible favorite for him)
I showed a peek in this post ..
It's a wee Kingfisher ... :)
( I love that out of all the birds , these ones have touched this man so much , he has many books and works of art dedicated to the subject)
I learned so much about them while researching.. they have a protective layer which shoots across their eye when diving underwater for fish.. I also didn't realize that their feet are a bright orange/red and they are so tiny compared to the rest of their body :)
I think they are so precious..
thanks for visiting...
Sending you all a magical week ahead xxxxx Helen
