Inspiration; the pollinators
~The practice and importance of pollination fascinates me and feels me with awe. It was just a coincidence really that I have made so many humming birds( my sis loves them ...so I made some).
What I really want is to get into the nitty gritty pollinators( the humming birds are the Marilyn of the pollinators);a whole series celebrating all the not so glamorous pollinators. Did you know mosquitoes pollinate? So these are some inspirations I have been pouring over. I am especially intrigued with the flies as pollinators. Yesterday I took burger to his favorite local museum ; The Texas Memorial Museum and we were both very into the "Hawaiian Flies: Song and Dance Success" exhibit; I found myself particularly taken with their intsy wings. I am going to go sew now and see what happens.....
P.S. belle and burger will be at the Farmers Market this Saturday May 21 unless it is a total washout(not likely)
P.S.S. Young Blood Gallery and Boutique in Atlanta will be carrying belle and burger soon( probably by June!!!)
