while she naps, indeed

i have long been a fan of the talented abby glassenberg, of while she naps. her work is nothing short of stunning, an absolutely marvel. at once realistic and fantastical, she brings birds + beasts to life in a way i've not seen anywhere before. my very favourites are her birds. the ruffles + wings + feet. and the body language. just look at the peahen [below, centre] and her puffed out chest. perfect.

i do hope you've enjoyed my impromptu bird week here on the blog. it won't be the last you see of birds here, by any means, but in keeping with
this post, i'm going to change it up a bit next week. happy weekend, all!
