I found the barnacles while backpacking on the Lost Coast. The bodies are made out of Sculpey clay.
The neighbors' tree in Los Altos dropped a lot of pine cones into Harry's yard. The 'petals' of the pine cones looked a bit like feathers, so I assembled them into an owl.
I painted these while taking a silk painting class from Natasha Foucault at the Mountain View/Los Altos adult school.
After a stormy fall day I walked around Palo Alto, gathering various seeds. The mirror originally had a gold crackle paint effect complete with roses. I took a a power sander to it and then glued pine cone bits and other seeds to it.
