murder of crows

In June, my Mom and I participated in an art show/silent auction hosted by The Frugal Crow.  Each year the vintage shop puts out a call to artists and crafters to transform a metal crow figure.  The pieces are displayed for a few weeks and then auctioned off for a local non-profit.  Customers are also encouraged to vote for their favorite crow.  It's a fun project!
My Mom's crow
"One if by Land, Two if by Tree"
Materials: gesso, tissue paper, dictionary pages, gel medium, acrylic paint, plastic doves, thread, and handmade paper
She really out did herself.  Impeccable work as always! 
My crow
"Seamstress for the Fowls"
Materials: gesso, sewing patterns, gel medium, cloth measuring tape, thread, embroidery floss, buttons, tiny scissors, and nail polish

  I was so pleased with how my crow came together.  The piece was inspired by Elton John's song, Tiny Dancer.

LOL I love that you were inspired by 'Tiny Dancer'!

I knew a girl that thought the chorus to that song was really, "Hold me closer Tony Danza..." for most of her adult life. Needless to say, we are no longer friends.

I missed these somehow -- I love both of your crows!
