I really love birds! These are so sweet, when you see them at the shore, running in and out of the tide as it comes in. I made the foam behind them with wool and felted it onto some sparkly, organza type fabric. The gorgeous background is is some of my fabric I ice dyed. Wow you can get some of the most spectacular colors doing that and it is always a surprise!
I feel like this fabric represents the darkling sea in the evening, and the little sandpipers are getting their before bedtime snack just as it gets dark.
I have always been an artist and with art quilts I have found a way to combine my two loves of painting and textiles.
