"Black Chinned Hummingbird on Oleander"
From a photo © Statia Dougherty - used with permission
I had some new fabric paints from Prochemical and, after securing permission from Statia, I tried them out with her photo as my guide.
The little bird was layered and quilted first before I layered and quilted the background so that he would stand out from the background. I used Aurifil 50 weight cotton threads.
I chose to finish it so that it would resemble a matted photograph with a frame.
