A Little Bird Told Me....

A few years ago, I began a series of masks based on things that my mother would say to me when I was a child. These usually took the form of mild warnings or ways to counter the slings and arrows from other children (i.e. If you can't say something nice... or Stick and stones..., etc).

I recently added to the collection with this piece. Whenever I had done something that I probably shouldn't have done, my mother always seemed to know. At the time, I failed to understand the concept of parental networking. When I would ask how she knew of my deed, she would reply: "a little bird told me". When I think about it now, I'm pretty sure that's when "Birdgirl" became a part of my psyche!
