A Sharp Eye

This roadrunner is one of my favorite pieces to date and I just had to share with all of you.

He is approximately 7" tall, 7" deep and about 12" wide.  The glass is, of course, one of my reverse glass paintings.  The frit background is a gorgeous multi-hued sand color with tons of depth.  

The wood piece he is mounted on was a large chunk of driftwood I got down at Lake Silverwood.  I ended up sawing the piece in half lengthwise to expose the gorgeous red-ish brown heart of the wood and mounted the tile on one of the flat sawn sides.  The "leg" is attached to the back of the wood for support and also has such a great color to it - almost black in parts.

I really wanted to keep this one....
