Working on this "Four calling birds" installation has not been as smooth as the "three french hens". Yesterday I tried to ad the SENSUOUSNESS of paper to the figure of the pelican and I think I ruined her for the grouping... Now she is off to the side having tea in my store. (The tea cups have letters floating in the surface that say, "Call your mother". But that's another train of thought.
I have a few things to work out in the studio to come clean with one good piece. Some days, weeks, months are like that.
