The phone rang and I needed someplace to sit them so I grabbed the first thing I saw. It was a small branch of wood I found at the lake that had this beautiful moss green/silver patina. I cut it into several short lengths and polyurethaned them to protect them for future projects . Couldn't have come up with a better perch had I actually tried :)
They sort of reminded me of the Cow Birds that populated our feeders last season at the lake and I couldn't resist getting out my colors to finish them off.
They are a bit rough around the edges , but keep in mind...it's just a claydoodle .
