Inspiration comes from many sources and for the luckiest among us, it comes regularly.
The other day my husband walked into the house with the most precious little treasure I could ever have imagined. He had in his hands a small beautifully built bird nest made from what looked like the tail hairs from all three of our horses.
I marvel at the variety of materials and the masterful workmanship – woven with a beak! Horse hair is unwieldy stuff. It doesn’t get woven easily without wanting to pop back out. This little gem demonstrates everything the truly successful artist must be:
- and able to let go
I posted this photo on my Facebook wall and the reaction I got from my friends was so overwhelmingly positive it made me imagine having a show in a gallery with nothing but found bird’s nests. Wouldn’t that be divine?
