Caged Leaf Fairy






Green finch, and linnet bird,
Nightingale, blackbird,
How is it you sing?
How can you jubilate
sitting in cages
never taking wing?
Outside the sky waits
beckoning!
Beckoning!
Just beyond the bars...
How can you remain
staring at the rain
maddened by the stars?
How is it you sing
anything?
Stephen Sondheim












Taking Wing: 
The Leaf Fairy's wings are made out of thin wire, protruding from the sculpt.


I cover them with tracing paper, wetted in an acrylic wash, and lots of Elmer's glue.
Check out that luminescence!  


Too bad she's stuck in this cage.
