Miniature birds

friends, it has been way too long! but i was forced to "disappear" from life for a bit.  mid December, i was in a bike crash and suffered a moderate concussion. as a result, i was told by the doctor to stay away from computer screens, tv screens and books. the best thing for me was to stay in a darkened room with no stimulation to my brain. that didn't last long, i'm afraid, but i did take my injury seriously and stayed away from the screen as long as possible. the road to recovery has been slow and long. my eyes are still not back to where they were before the crash. they get tired easily and so i haven't been reading much at all. long periods of time on the computer also tires them, so i still have to take it easy. but, i have been back to the studio.

here are some images of my recent work, since my concussion:

this last image is a detail of one of the birds, just so you have an idea of how big these miniature birds are:
