A couple years back I saw the work of an artist at a local art sales gallery who makes these little sculptural birds (some on actual wheels and he adorns them with metal and other 'found' items). For the life of me I can not remember his name and need to look him up! It will come to me though eventually (of course, I could call that gallery; at some point I will update this post with his info!)
I did not purchase one of his bird sculptures but, was inspired to create a reminder of them!
I never really saw this as 'Steampunk' (Steam Punk?) until recently.
Was thinking I should sell this but I can't quite let it go
It's 16 x 20" and bright and metallic and fun and swirly and makes me smile. I actually glued on the feather and the button and little metal embellishment.
I will soon be using this image (maybe card sets?) in my etsy shop.
