|Di's Red-Tailed Hawk Mosaic|
When commissioned to create something new, I never make two of it at the same time... However, something happened when my friend Di commissioned a Red-Tailed Hawk. Maybe it was the thought that I would very likely never make another one on my own volition? But that has been true in many situations, so maybe it was that one day I could make Di smile.
You see I didn't tell Di what I was up to till after the fact, and then only spoke of it with a twinge of guilt. But the hawks are not twins, for that would be impossible for me to do. They are siblings of a new species, Di's Red-Tailed Hawk. If I ever make a third or a fourth, they will have Di's name on it. She inspired it.
Now why do I finally blog about the sibling, well it is being sent to a new owner this week thanks to our etsy shop. I wonder if Di and the new owner would be great friends, but what I do know is that when Di reads this and leaves even the briefest of comments; I can guarantee that I will send her a message that will make her smile.
