Original mixed media painting measuring 30x 24 inches on 1 and 1/2 " deep wood panel.
This is a very large painting for me, and it was a work of pure love. I painted it in tribute to the beautiful backyard birds that have awakened me each morning this spring. Did you know that there is a name for all that chirping? It's called the dawn chorus! Can you find the male and female cardinal pair? Or the swallow?
This painting is comprised of many layers including handmade Nepalese paper, player piano scroll (this snippet reads 'land of sunshine' in top right corner), torn book pages, acrylic paint, including copper and gold, and gelatos. Signed on the front and titled on reverse, this piece is fitted with a wire and ready to hang on the wall without a frame.
