100 feeders (7).

I have spent the past two days in my studio: it is time to give some numbers. on wednesday I have managed to paint the base of all the remaining boxes: the most boring job is done! yesterday I have decorated some: I have now 35 decorated boxes and 65 more ready for decoration.
documenting the seventh week of work:

✻ it is getting harder to come up with new decorations - but each feeder still looks different from one another. will people like them?
next week I am starting two more workshops - which means that I will have less time to dedicate to my 100 Feeders project. I do not really want to start counting down the weeks - but I need to finish decorating the boxes as soon as I can. not to mention that I still have to customize each of them into a bird feeder and print the 100 postcards. I am going to need a lot of cheering and support!

      I am glad you like it and, since you live in Helsinki,
      you could actually get one of the feeders -
      if you'd like to participate to the project! :-)

    1. Amanda, thank you :-)
      the starry night comes both in the summer and the winter version - in the latter one with an attempt of representing the northern lights, as you might have noticed ;-)

  4. This is what I like about art, you can use something ordinary and make it extraordinary. These are beautiful, I really love the idea.
