#207 - Independence Day

This magestic red, white and blue eagle was created in observance of both Memorial Day and the the Fourth of July.  My original concept was to create a flag, but when my research  uncovered an eagle, my plan quickly changed.  The eagle was created from gerbera daisy, onion skin, delphinium, bark and bridal veil.  The fireworks featured bridal veil and queen Anne’s lace.  This piece was vacuum sealed and framed with 99% UV acrylic.
