Sometimes, ladies and gentlemen, my ambition gets the better of me. I’ve always wanted to make a mosaic of a red-browed finch. I tried, but it did not go well. Perhaps I’m being too much of a perfectionist. The finished product is a bit ragged because I de-constructed it a couple of times in a manner that was a touch violent. Still, I got control of myself and made what repairs I could.
Perhaps the person for whom I made it (Brian), won’t mind rescuing it? He can re-wild it with his other birds, maybe have a chat to it every now and then, so it doesn’t feel too forlorn.
I think I will stick to a subject that is a little easier next time. Yep, that’s what I will do. Get real, as they say. Here’s the model. I really was asking for it.
Just remember, ladies and gentlemen, that every project is a learning experience. They don’t all have to be masterpieces.
