Magpie - ©mixed media Caroline Soer 2011
Magpies love to cache - they seek out and hide appealing oddments. This one has found a broken string of beads - Magpies seem to find shiny objects mesmerising. Mixed media - Oil pastel, ink, gouache and glass beads on paper for Illustration Friday.
P.S. Clicking on the image may take you to Blogger's new photo viewer (a new feature that doesn't always seem to work at the moment!). If it does and you still want to view the image larger, right click, select 'view image' and then use the magnifier to enlarge again for greater detail. Hopefully that will work!
