Happy New Year from Artlandia! Things I wanted to do before the end of 2017: more birds.
One might think I have enough birds (never!), but there actually are a few poses that I wanted - for example, this side pose leaned back/away (and once I had it facing one way, I thought I might as well carve it going the other way.)

especially around the eye and wings.)

I also put new feathers in the cloche and photographed it - getting ready to pack up all the Swallows components for installation January 8th. (Eep!)
In creature news...
|It continues to be very, very cold here and Honey continues |
to revel in the snow - I marvel at how she's so elegant and content
in this weather.
|My Princess on the other hand decided that the best place to nap |
was on her human's heated shrug...while the human
was wearing it and carving blocks.
|It was time to put away the "ornaments" from the |
kitty toy tree. Junior went
right into the box after them to retrieve them,
"Oh, Human, you dropped these."
