The Simpler the better sometimes

I may have posted this last year when I first created it , not sure but its one of my favorite pieces....It is two loons in love sitting on a piling at the beach. I love the shape of the loon it is smooth and simple and just lets your eye see it for what it is a elegant little bird with a crazy name. It is properly known as a Cormorant and they love to winter can see them every where and sometimes you will see them with their wings spread wide welcoming the winter sun to warm them and give them lifeforce. Their lives are so simple fly, swim and eat...
and occasionally bring a smile to a passerbys face such as mine.
The loons are created from a Batik flannel the picture does not due them justice...the colors are much more vibrant and pop at you from the texture of the flannel. The moon is a gold silk, and the arch and background are two different color browns of sueded panne.
I made this piece as a gift for my hubby. The first 3 of this design I made very simply and sold right away...without even getting pictures of them. Their message is simply enjoy the simple things of life. Breathe....

Having been a artist literally all my life, I love color and dimension.I learned to sew at age 10 , by age 13 started a stuffed animal business, which grew into a collectable Teddy Bear Business for 15 + years. I opened my own bead store specializing in Spontaneous Creation classes and love to teach everyone they could be creative and open the door to their imagination.I recently returned to one of my favorite art forms taking photographs my father gave me my first camera when I was a child and I have loved photography ever since. I took professional family portraits and weddings for the first 5 years living in the Outer Banks, I am now shooting Family portraits again and sharing my love of the Outer Banks through my blogs. Be creative, walk in faith and never give up....It all happens in God's time
