"Desert Dreaming"

I began work on this bird after we got home from the desert.  The colors used, seem to reflect what I saw while out in that wild world.  Do you think this guy is waiting to fly off to the west, back to where he'll blend in well?

I experimented with his top-knot - by using loop levels of 10 and 11.  Now I know what those loops look like and they certainly made a good head dress!

  1. I've been waiting for you to do something in the #10-11 loop range, and the top-knot is perfect. If this fellow wants to take flight, tell him that his colors would blend well in south Jersey too. You know I love your birds, Penny, and again, you have created another beauty!

  2. He is welcome to visit Tucson when ever he wants!!! Beautiful and very much a desert bird. I can see him on my prickly pear cactus. You really have talent. Judy AZ

  3. A perfect topknot for this handsome fella.
