an attempt to grab creativity amidst the chaos.

Magnum Opus?

This little felt ditty (still, and perhaps forever in progress/ process) was supposed to be a quick and dirty effort.

 I'm still a painter in my brain and a bit of a slap dash painter, if I do say so myself.
So, I sketched up a cartoon and thought I could fling it together only...
something strange is happening

I am becoming more and more crazy with each effort.
more and more detailed
I'm adding beads for Kripes sake!

I went all Art Therapist BatShite on this piece and suddenly instead of a cute little bird stack, it turned into a family portrait. Only, the 'canvas' isn't big enough to tell a good story, so it's a hybrid tale evolving on and on
...and on

Who knew how dangerous stitches could be?
 Ohhhhhh the poor details in the grip of the slap dasher!

Update. Finito.

Finishing touches
