|Log Cabin painted bird house with Woodpecker|
So, it's back to the painted bird houses for the Christmas Craft Fair today. I started this one a couple of weeks back but hadn't done anything more to it so I thought I better get my finger out as the fair is on 7 December which isn't really that far away (I'm printing out greetings cards as we speak to try and get all my stock together or I'll end up in a mad panic the day before!)
Anyway, this is the 4th of the bird houses, I have another 2 blank ones which I hope to get done in time.
This one is based on a log cabin - the kind I imagine that folk in America escape to when they need a break from the big city lifestyles - you know like Aidan took Carrie to in one episode of Sex in the City ( I never did understand why she chose Big over the lovely Aidan but that's a whole other topic which doesn't involve painted bird houses!)
As it's a log cabin I figured the only bird I could possibly paint on this one would be a woodpecker! This is a greater spotted woodpecker and funny enough we've got a family of them living in the trees near us and one even popped down for a nibble at our bird table this morning as I was sitting painting this. He quickly flew off again though when he discovered the restaurant was closed - bad wildlife feeding person that I am, I forgot to buy more bird seed and nuts the last day I was in town and he didn't seem keen on the fat balls!
This is my submission for AEDM Day 23.
