    As they say, “Genious is 10% inspiration and 90% perspiration.” You worked hard getting these cranes to look ablolutely beautiful.

    That should be “absolutely”, not “ablolutely”. 😉

  5. Thank you Laurie, Vicki, and Ginger. I’m already missing those big birds in my studio.

    Gail you could always go to court to for visitation rights. Beautiful work.

  7. Yes, these birds are magnificent! I love the different poses in flight, and so lifelike.

    Gail, you truly are an artist extraordinaire!
