Where it began....Maggie
Mixed media painted with a feather, except the beak and eye. Maggie was my very first orphan, I was 17 and I came across a couple of lads that thought it was fun to kill a nest of Magpies. Maggie was just about to have a stone dropped on to her, which is how the rest of her siblings met their end. After giving the lads a thick ear, I put het in my pocket and took her home, she was probably about 4/5 days old. We had a fabulous time together and she stayed with me for about 18 months before answering the call of the wild, even though she was able to do so any time she lived outside. For another year she would visit me from time to time....and that was it, hooked on doing my best for any orphans that have come my way.
