Just look at this beautiful EMU – RALPH!! The original artwork was done by the VERY talented Ms. Fiona (Fiona Groom Artist)!! I have to say that when I found Ms. Fiona I was mesmerized!! Ralph was not only the first of her artworks I found, but the first I fell in love with!! After reaching out to her I was able to get permission to do a beadwoven version of her art! She was able to approve the design and also watched it grow into the finished creation. She was also one of the first people to see it actually framed and completed!! I am proud to say she loved it!! ***blush blush*** Here are the details of the art….but remember, it isn’t about the time, the beads or the colors…it is all about the expression on Ralph’s face!! 🙂
The beadwork went together very easily – except when I decided to take out about 40 rows to ‘re-do’ the eyes!! So, when you look at the hours of work, that included the time to take out, sort the beads, redo the pattern and re-bead the area around the eyes!! That will add about 3K more beads to the mix!!! OH MY!!!
