I will, it may not be until August. I am contemplating doing the necklace as a different picture on each side. One of Phoe as the cute fuzzy baby and one of one of the adults.

I knew Foldi's quilt would top out at more than $500.00

Way to go Foldi.

One time check in while away - $560 at present.  Well done.

'artist' - a lovely idea, thank you.

How very generous of you, artist to offer your special eagle painting for the benefit of HEG!  It must be hard to paint on such a small surface!

This is a link to the painting that artist listed on ebay for HEG.  (I think, seems to match what artist posted!)

btw, maybe an admin can set up a different thread for you...

I am for anything that will help preserve wildlife and ecology. If it helps our little Phoe, her family and fellow Eagles while educating people. Then my donating that is all for a worthy cause.

Painting miniature is very diffcult and takes longer to do than painting a larger picture. I paint smaller than that even and I have to use magnifiers to paint by.

I didn't want to post it here but I couldn't find a way to post it in a new post.

Foldi's quilt is doing very well.

Artist, that's very generous of you.  Thanks for your kindness and concern for wildlife and ecology.  It seems to be very important to many people who watch the Hornby eagles cam   :eclove

Tigerlady,

I am admamant that we should all try to protect wildlife and the earth to the best of our ability. Our natural resources and wildlife are the most precious things. That oil spill breaks my heart for all the birds that live off the oceans, the life in the oceans and people who have lost everything. All the oils spills, and pollution dumped into the oceans tears at my heart.

If I ran the country or the world, no one would ever be permitted to drill in our oceans and seas. I have had many in the oil industry say I would put them out of work. Well they could work on something more constructive like alternative fuel means.

If they allowed me to keep a horse in the backyard I would ride one and not a car. I also believe they should make hybrid vehicles less expensive so everyone can have one.

Ecology and wildlife preservation is a very important to me and I feel it should be to everyone. Sad they don't think they way we do.

Artist.

The quilt auction just ended ... in the last couple of seconds, the bid went up to $760

Congratulations to foldi for a great auction, and to the lucky winner for being on their toes.
