Red is Cool!

Is this one of the coolest b-day presents ever?

Red the Cardinal (okay, not the most original name, but we’re still working on it) was fabricated by Jonna Faulkner under the firm guiding hand of friend and soft-sculpture mentor, Barbara Whitehill. Red stands 8 inches high and is a true mixed media soft sculpture.  If you want to know more about the construction details, ask Jonna or Barbara. It’s hard enough explaining how to make the photos… ;o)

This is the second soft bird sculpture made by Jonna with Barbara’s guidance.  The first was a wonderful Steampunk Raven who shares our home and has graced these pages.

Both photos were shot with a Nikon DSLR camera (D800 for Red; D300 for Steampunk Raven) using a 60mm micro lens.  both were shot in my Escondido studio under tungsten light.

Eat right. Get plenty of sleep. And NEVER mix light when shooting your art or jewelry.  ;o)

But most of all, enjoy!

    Thanks, John!! Actually, what’s great are the sculptures themselves. I just try hard to get out of the way and let the viewers really see the objects/art. Glad you like what you see.

    It was wonderful to see you at Christmas, John. We had a great time.

      I’m assuming the “major cool guy” is Red. And I whole heartedly agree. He’s really taken to living on my office desk.

      Hope your holidays were wonderful! All the best in the new year! Let’s set up a lunch, Judith! You’re so close and it’s been way too long!
