Helen and I go back a long way, since the days of her first trip to Australia. She was a spritely thing back then and hasn’t changed one bit…….apart from her hair colour! Anyway, we hit it off straight away.
I started to accompany her on trips, show her around, and we became firm friends. She calls me her muse…which is quite funny to me, as I thought that was a rock group!
In the Blob Bird family there is the lovely Robin Redbreast, sterling chap, quite fond of the cherry cola if you know what I mean?! Mr and Mrs Bluetit who live two trees down from me, and the Greenfinches who have the large conifer mansion. I hear Mr Greenfinch is an established actor and regularly does plays in Greenland….and Mrs Greenfinch is an opera singer – you sometimes hear her practicing in the early hours of the morning.
And me? Oops where are my manners! My name is Blob the Blackbird. I was the first Blob Bird to reveal myself to Helen and so I suppose am the original inspiration for Helen Russell Creations….
So, I have been doing my job and have inspired her to create a series of new sculptures perfect for Valentines Day. Us Blob Birds are a romantic bunch anyway so posing for these pieces of work has been no bother at all. I hope you like them.
Until we meet again at the Blob Bird Bush have fun and take care x
