Encaustic Etched Birds...

"Blue Jay" Encaustic, Etched + Oil Pigments 10x10
I recently completed these two Encaustic pieces.
The Blue Jay is a fun one, I was imagining him on his perch high above the forest floor, sqwaking.
The Jay is part of the larger family of birds called Corvids. Not surprisingly, this family includes Crows and Ravens. Explains the noisy nature of the Jay!

"Red Crossbill" Encautsic, Etched + Oil Pigments 10x10

The Red Crossbill is perched in the pines. The winter sky tells the story of a cold day. This birdy has its feathers ruffled out a bit to keep warm.
