I wish! The pocket is a bit tight at the moment, but I will still inquire and maybe grab one anyway, unless they are gone. Would have loved to get both though.

I think i was a bit premature anyway. Looks like the show isn't until next month. So they probably won't be available for another couple of weeks. So there's still a shot!

It doesn't hurt to ask. I could be wrong but I think a lot of the swoon pieces were sold before the preview went out. I'd be all over this if gilded age wasn't a month away.

Those are fantastic! I'd rather the gold not be on them tho, my eyes go right to it instead of the amazing birds and foliage

I agree about the gold on some of hers but on these I think it complements the image really well rather than being distracting.

One of two Northern Flicker works in progress for the 'Unnatural Histories' group show at @antlerpdx, one of my favourite shows of the year! I adore coming up with the mythology behind these pieces as I work on them, and these beautiful birds are providing so much inspiration as I work things out.

Had a nice package arrive today from the UK. All done in colored pencil. Colors are super vibrant in person, size is about 9x8. Another awesome piece from Vanessa.

Yeah, she really goes all out with her OG/commission packages. Even writes a sweet little thank you note in gold.

Looks awesome Tim!

Going to sort out the placement of his wee legs once I've decided what he's standing on, I assume it will be hoops and I suspect they will be gold
