On my last trip to Florida, I got several photos of herons that I really wanted to translate to wall quilts using silk.
I actually used the legs from one photo, and the body and
head from a different photo.
What an elegant bird... I really hope that they are not affected by the disastrous oil spill the way the pelicans and other wildlife have been.
I did thread painting and beading for extra dimension - the
grass is silk, also, as is the sun...
I plan to make another similar one, with slightly different colors.
