I’m still thinking on this one while working on three more.  But, this one is closest to finish and I wanted to share it with you.

  1. So cool! I love the nest structures, and the second tiny bird child. The main figure is very mesmerizing! She looks so serious and determined. Love it!

  2. Such an air of determination about this little bird-child – her coiled spells around her…maybe…!

    1. Thanks! I was def. after that feeling of determination-vulnerable but with purpose.

  3. OMG Elena this is an incredible vision coming to life, wonderful that you are sharing with us. Your creativity astounds me, I’m overwhelmed with the scene. As she unfolds her “feather-weight” wings and gangly legs from the cozy nest she enjoys, one sees her grace coming forward as she lingers and floats toward the view below. Is she a good species or a dangerous vision of what’s to come?

    1. I’m not sure which way it will go;) Still working. I so appreciate your kind comments Mary. You know how it is, we work in isolation, and that’s good, but it’s also great to have feedback. Thank you!

  4. There seems to be a lot going on here. In the top left corner one bird seems to have flown the nest, but what intrigues me is that just below that bird and a little to the right is what appears to an eye viewing the happenings. In fact, the contorted shape of the flower stem creates distinct facial features – eyebrow, nose, mouth etc. But then …. I’m rambling on!!

    1. Ramble away Louis, I love it! Seriously, I appreciate all your comments and ideas. It makes it such fun to share what I’m doing, and I learn from each commenter. Thanks much Louis!

  5. Utter spookiness and the strange realism lives together, is really the dream world.
    It seems, this image remains in my subconscious long long time.

      1. Anyhow, we wakeup in one-piece = no need to afraid = it’s mean,
        we have literally dream like adventure in a nightmare isn’t it ?
        Don’t you think, how exciting would it be !

  6. Wow! I am completely intrigued by the story developing here – its like watching a fairy tale in its magical infancy.
    Elena, that bird-child is gorgeous and mysterious. I will end this with another Wow!

    1. P.S. I also really love your nests and the black and white treatment, as well as the child’s luminous face…speaks to me of the winter palette here. Looking forward to more color as it warms up, though!
