Out On A Limb: 9

In the last post about the new pieces in this series, I mentioned that it started with the idea to combine antique black-and-white images of birds with color ones. Well, that impulse came from the vibrant Victorian scrap shown here. It's part of the trove of Victoriana that my friend Shirley Tenhover keeps surprising me with. Just received a new box of goodies from her, but more about that another time. I left the number tag on the scrap, because it reminded me of the tagging of animals by scientists. Like the earlier piece, this will be in the Redtree show that opens Friday. 5" x 5" on claybord/hardwood panel, ready to hang [SOLD]
