WONDERFUL Pam. Love that little bird skull. We have 28 huge glass windows and the birds sometimes hit - so we have skulls!!! Probably TMI but your project just reminds me of the different aspects of nature. Love how you used the Metallic Lustre on your feathers - gorgeous. The entire canvas is AWESOME. Love the bright colors for sure! Xj.
