"Wings" weekly art challenge...

This week the challenge is to create art using the theme of "Wings".

Birds, bees, ladybirds, angels, butterflies, planes, gliders, dragons, fairies, Pegasusgargoyles...... the list of possibilities is long.

Here's some 'wing' themed art to inspire you:

A few 'wing' themed items from our etsy team members shops:



And from the V&A online collection:

'Dragon Flower' Roger Doyle/Jane Short 1979
18th Century plate

Kimono, 1930s, Japan

John Donald, 1969

Papercut - Fengning, 1986

'The Owl', voysey, wallpaper/textile design, 1897

The challenge guidelines can be found in this blog's right hand column >>>>>>
Please leave a comment with a link to your results by midday (EST) Sunday and then come back here later that day to see what everyone else has created.

Wishing you a very happy & creative week!
Kat :-)

Kat, I love this theme. Thank you for putting together the treasury, it's so pretty! A treasury is a great idea for a challenge post. (Who knew we had so many wings among us :)

Your other examples are just exquisite. I absolutely love the golden honeycomb piece. This challenge is so diverse, it should really let us spread our wings and fly! Sorry. I couldn't resist :)
