I have been hooked on a PBS documentary Nature. According to a scientist appeared in that program, the gray squirrel's brain enlarges in winter and shrinks back to its original size in spring. The reason is, the scientist speculates, to remember each location of thousands of nuts it has buried in fall. Another nature's wonder....
I experimented with flocking in this sculpture. The process of gluing fine fiber on a surface is used on the owl, and it seems to have accented the piece well. What do you think?
As I thought this would be a perfect image to send out on Thanksgiving Day, I worked until 1:30 last night to finish this. The result makes me smile. Hope it does to you, too. Happy Thanksgiving!
Thank you Claudia and Lynnette. Taking your advice, I have decided to leave the original concept of this sculpture the way it is. While re-attaching her to the paper crane hanger, I changed the title from SKY to LITTLE MESSENGER OF PEACE. She flies with my humble wishes to spread joy and peace in this world.
