A Bigger Bird

 Tis the time of the year when it is hard to get new work done!
I had been really wanting to do one of my seagull in a larger size. With an upcoming appointment with another gallery, I had all the motivation I needed. Just finished this one tonight.
He measures 11"x14". I especially love the fact that most of the body is made from papers I made myself!!
I find that extremely satisfying.
I took the picture below to show the difference between the little tiny ones I'd been doing beside this bigger version.
While the new one isn't huge....it sure looks it next to the little guys.
I'm sure there will be more of these sea birds to come!

Oh Wanda, they are both stunning, but I love the way your own paper looks on the big one. All of your paper pieces are just glorious! Good luck with the new gallery possibility, they'd be really stupiid if they are not interested!
