New bird in town

I'm back in the studio working on my new "Bird" collection.  Flamingoes are flocking together and the old pelican needed some friends, so in flew a new neighbor!

"Sitting Pretty"

The "Sitting Pretty" flamingoes are multiplying and  enjoying each other's company.  These needle-felted beauties ~6" tall are semi posable and will help brighten your day.

The story behind the flamingoes....
Several members of the Bolton Artisans Guild chose to participate in a “color “ challenge in which we randomly chose a “not so popular” paint chip color.  We were challenged to take the color and create something based on the sample chip.   Luckily, I chose what I’d call “flamingo pink”.  Being a felt artist, I decided to create a flock of flamingoes as part of my new “Bird” sculpture collection.  Louie Girl’s other bird sculptures include - Pelicans (inspired by the poor gulf oil soaked pelicans),  Humming birds (as seen in my gardens), the new Flamingo collection and more birds will be flying in!

The color chip is below the flamingoes in this picture..
