For the Birds

This is the first Gothic arch I've ever made, and I'm going to use it for Andrew's birthday card in a few weeks. As usual, the images came from Vogue and English Garden. The ex-parrot came from a travel brochure I brought home from Belize, and the words came from Monty Python. "Beautiful plumage, innit?"

I just feel like I'm giving myself a treat to the eyes when I visit your blog. Your artwork is always unexpected and oh so divine. Did you just return from Belize?? I visited a few years ago and absolutely loved the country.

Cool arch! I love the music playing "Mummers' Dance" is it celtic btw? Very soothing and yet enough to get you in the mood to create and paint!
