This small scene was a recent work that went to Sydney.
The Sulphur Crested Cockatoos seem to have left the area but when they are here they are such eccentric, rowdy visitors and a source of fascination and delight.
I played a little on the computer.
This is what happened.
Interesting. A maybe project, sometime… added to the growing mountain of ideas and shrinking stream of time. I loved the play of colour and tone. Too inspired.
These are the actual materials and size of this piece that is hand-stitched mainly from wool felt with the addition of a few specialty yarns and tiny glass beads. A miniature scene that was a joy to create and came about one morning after observing the cockatoos. A large flock had descended around the front of the house. Several of the young ones were quite intrigued by the shade cloth on the pergola; so intrigued they assisted with some of their carpentry skills. The pergola will need some repairs.
But nature beckons to explore and wonder.
