A Goldfinch for A Good Friend...

A friend of mine did a good deed.  I don't always get a chance to reward random acts of kindness.  Time seems to be in short supply these days.  But this time, I wanted to do more than just send a note.  I took a few moments each night and carved a block of polymer clay.  Once it was cured and I had tooled it with a Speedball Linoleum Cutter and then painted it.  I knew that my friend liked birds, so I picked a goldfinch.  I love the happy little coat of yellow feathers and how they turn upside-down to eat their thistle.  Seeing them flutter around always brings a smile to my face and I wanted to share that with my friend.
