Birds of a Feather Exhibit: Blue Heron
Blue Heron, Sandra Atkins
“When we moved to our new house in SC we discovered that the builder put a big ugly electrical box in our hallway. I had been needle felting 3D figures for about 18 months and decided to try a 2D wall hanging to cover the box.
Since we live on the marsh, a heron was the natural choice for my subject. The electrical box was fairly large and at the time I didn’t have a large foam mat so I had to do the piece in sections.”
