Flamingo at the Beach

2 loves

Inspired from a photo of a real flamingo, this 18x14 inch panel seeks to portray the bird as naturally as possible.  The glass for the bird's body (Bullseye Salmon Pink Opal) was specifically chosen to mimic the hot coral flashiness of the animal in the photo, with the glass grain alignment set to mimic the feathers.  The bottom sand and water, as well as the legs of the bird, were cut using a Taurus 3 ring saw.
