Growing up when I had a newspaper route many mornings would look like the scene I depicted in pastel above. Crows would follow me. I would recite Poe in my head and caw back at them. I figured we had the kinship of birds being a Robin. I created a series of bird silhouettes on suede mat board or black mat board. I recycled clothes to create the birds. Yes it is going GREEN and I just dearly wanted to use the fabrics. The large ones are 20" x 18". I hang them using fishing line so they seem to be in flight. The series will be available soon at my ETSY store.
