Having not long lefts the warmth and safety of its nest, this fledgeling Robin finds itself happily perched on the rusting ironwork. Watching out for either parent he becomes easily distracted by a lacewing fly who flies dangerously close. Curious he watches it closely with his beady eyes.
A number of techniques and mediums were used in the creation of this piece. The background is fabric painted and the Robin, Ironwork and fly were achieved through quilting, applique, embroidery, techniques. These techniques create the different textures from the warm feathers of the Robin to the rusty iron. 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.
