As Sweet As Honey
The sweet scent of the Honeysuckle bush drifts in the surrounding air. Its scent draws in bees and birds alike who have come to feast amongst its flowers. Here one male Bullfinch savers the delights of the flower, picking and choosing from buds above, that dangle like sweet temptations.
A number of techniques and mediums were used in the creation of this piece. The background is fabric painted and the bullfinch, flowers, leaves and stem were achieved through quilting, applique, embroidery, techniques. These techniques create the different textures from the warm feathers of the finch to the delicate flowers. Unfortunately, the three-dimensional relief doesn't show particularly well in the photos, so please take a look at the depth of the piece to get an idea of the overall effect.
