~ The Whirligigs of Summer ~
The two whirligigs shown here are good examples of a color pallet. Yellow, black and red is a striking choice. Outdoors they will begin to rust and the colors will fade and soften. But for now they will spin in the wind showing off their boldness. Brenda, the creator of the whirligig at the top is a super talented Steampunk artist and we used to carry her extraordinary jewelry in our shop. Her friend that created the gum ball machine topped gig below was also an artist and art teacher. It was great getting the chance to hang out with these cool women and making 2 very cool whirligigs.
