"Delta Flight"
12" x 6.5" x 3.5" - Mixed Media

Inspired by my frequent trips down the old dirt river road in South Arkansas in my youth, where I would observe the sacred dance of the red winged blackbirds as they swooped like little rockets back and forth between the fields. I found them strong, beautiful, playful, and free.

DELTA FLIGHT is comprised of a vintage iron blackbird, an antique 'Delta Jet Rocket' toy, red wing 'identification feathers' cut from pieces of old mercantile signs and leather straps from an old mule harness from the 1940's.
