This is a new little blackbird sculpture that I recently finished. Purely whimsical, with no greater meaning, it's a humerus little piece because you have to ask yourself, "Why would a bird need stilts when he can fly?"

Many of my pieces have small drawers. Some obvious as in this piece, but others less so. Opening the drawers often reveals a little surprise - a swirl of brightly colored paint, items embedded in resin, snippets of paper, or an unusual color combination. And the tiny little drawers make you want to find something special to put in them. Perhaps a trinket from your childhood, a beloved piece of jewelry, or even a tiny piece of paper onto which you've written a dream. Like learning to walk on stilts.
