Egret and Heron miniatures

I've recently finished an egret miniature and also a great blue heron miniature. Don't usually do two birds in a row like that, and now I'm starting on a bald eagle. Must be in a "birdy" mood!

Heron is done in casein. 3"x2"

The egret is 3.5" x 2.5", done in mixed media (casein and acrylic)

Beautiful work, Carol. They both just pop off the page. Such glowing colors! Glad to also hear you have your harp! Sending you love and good thoughts on your sadness now. Peace to you, your family and your sick friend.
