Elsy Menko – C
My chosen subject for this year is nature. As a bird lover what comes to mind first is birds. In The Netherlands we used to see many curlews in the farmland close to our home. I cannot remember having seen one here in Israel, such a pity, they are beautiful.
It was a joy to work on this assignment. I took a picture from the internet and for the background worked with strips of cotton, silk, organza, some polyester silver netting to attain some shimmer, tule and palm fibre. The bird is handstitched.
