New Felt - Whooping Crane and Chick

 I started a new piece of felt today in preparation for submission to the SDA MA-RI juried member show. I was totally inspired by this picture, which was a National Geographic photo of the day, earlier this week, and used it for my color choices and composition.
 
 

Here is my finished piece, drying in preparation for the hand stitching and embellishing that I plan to do to capture more of the grasses, the chick and the whooping crane's neck and head.

Thanks, Sue! Wait till you see it in person; the surface texture is wonderful.
