Sanctuary finally Finished

Sanctuary, or Is It?

I've been working on this piece for a while had it almost finished when I put it aside to spend this past week with our family.

Sanctuary came about after we had been to Harbor Island, SC to stay with friends.   There is a bird sanctuary within walking distance of their home.  Often we sit out on their back porch when the sun is setting and watch the birds fly over our heads on their way to roost.

We often go down to a landing for a little bird watching.  Sometimes the nest are close enough to see the babies.

Birds are not the only animal we see at the sanctuary.   Great big and tiny alligators.  Turtles and a few snakes.

I chose to add the alligator to show that sanctuary doesn't always mean  "A place of refuge or protection".

More on the construction in the next post.
