For the Birds....


Nancy asked me to hostess Gothic Arches again, thrilled me to death, and the theme I chose was .... For the Birds. Any interpretation of the theme as long as it has birds. Thanks to a dear friend of mine, my interest in nature and birds has been sparked! Going home from work one morning after a huge thunderstorm yielded all kinds of interesting twigs which I gathered up and brought home with me. I am now using them in my art whenever I can. This is my arch for the week and I hope everyone has fun with the theme. I can't wait to see what you all do.

I loved this the moment that I saw it on the challenge site this morning, dear Wylde woman. It has a sparseness that so complements the birds. Beautiful work.
