A beautiful story to enjoy.

I am busy firing my kiln today which I have filled w/many, many peacock feathers for my mosaic. I PRAY the colors come out as I want them to so I don't have to make all those feathers again. It's always so nervewracking. The glaze as you are applying it is not anywhere near the color it will be once it has been fired so it's like painting blind. I'm not even sure I will add a peacock or peacocks to the mosaic but I want to be prepared. Crazy isn't it.

I really have been meaning to draw your attention to another blogger. She has written AND illustrated a beautiful tale for children that is just so magical. The illustrations alone are unbelieveable. What a talent. Take a PEEK. When you get to the end of the page click on older posts to see all the pages.

I'm glad you all enjoyed the story. My favorite illustration is number 6. I can't imagine the time it took.

As for my mosaic...well the feathers didn't turn out the color I wanted. Of course they didn't. I will re-do them. I've had a lot of sucess re-glazing pieces so at least I won't have to come up w/the feather shapes again.

Oh - I followed the link to the illustrations yesterday and got lost. Forgot where I had started from. HA-HA! Now I know it was here.

Can't wait to see the mosaic. (Crossing fingers.)

Peter-Sounds like my kinda bird!

E4E-I'm quite obsessed at the moment which is why I'm not blogging.

Chewy-I can't believe all that detail!
Thanks for the crossed fingers. I am redoing the feathers. I didn't get what I wanted. That's okay.

Creativity is a wonderful thing to have. It really is a pity that mine is limited to planting flowers and playing an old bass guitar (the blues, of course.)
