Flying Birds & Art Around The House

Derby discovers he can watch the birds better from the upstairs window. 
He's looking at all the birds feeding on cracked sunflower seeds in the feeder below. 
Standing on my needlepoint pillows ... I'm not happy

Art Around Our Home
This is one of the early pieces of art by
3D Pop Art Artist Charles Fazzino
It's hard to tell this is a 3D piece of art by this photo.
What I find interesting is each time you look, your eye catches some new level of detail
Charles Fazzino is one of the most popular and highly-collected pop artists of all time. During his more-than-thirty years as a pop artist, he has inserted his unique, detailed, vibrant, and three-dimensional style of artwork into the very fabric of popular culture. Fazzino's artworks are exhibited in more than twenty countries and 600 fine pop art galleries. He has received many private and important commissions and has been selected as the official artist for festivals and events all over the world. Charles is often referred to as a pop culture historian because of the breadth of his work and the way it touches his collectors and captures the best parts of their contemporary lives. His legacy will mark him as part of the next generation of famous pop art artists as he follows the paths originally forged by pop art pioneers like Andy Warhol, Keith Haring, Red Grooms, and Robert Rauschenberg. 
What drew me to his work (back in 1991) was the use of color.  Everything is hand-cut, hand-glittered with a 3-Dimensional construction.  I have one more Fazzino in our collection entitled "Our Town DC".  I'll post more of our 'art collection' soon.
