Pages and Books > Pages and Books 2013–2017

I have spent many years drawing with thread, but I never actually embroidered until a friend gave me a large bag of unwanted embroidery floss. Continuing my interest in a sense of place, I have created a twenty-one page, unbound, boxed Bird Book containing portraits of birds commonly observed on my property. The black pages of dyed cotton organdy measure 7.5" x 7.5". The birds vary between 3" x 5" in height and width. Unique artist's book

Come, fill the cup, and in the fire of Spring
Your Winter garment of repentance fling.
The bird of time has but a little way to flutter ---
And the bird of time is on the wing.
Omar Khayyam

Bird by bird, Buddy.
Just take it
bird by bird.
