A single sheet of waxy bond paper sculpted into a somewhat abstracted Fox Sparrow, silhouetted on a striking cobalt teal on rice paper background, washed with multiple translucent layers of acrylic. Pen & ink detailing emphasizes the allusion of the energy inherent in all living things. One of a series of twelve each bird, through their habits and migration patterns, represent visitors or local residents and offer a perspective of one’s sense of place on a level perhaps not previously explored by the viewer. "The Hiker represents those who explore the environment by land: Nests as far north as there are trees and from ocean to ocean, has made a specialty of living on the ground, secretive habits, vigorous forager, explores the rich humus exposed by a whirl-wind commotion of kicking feet, it's song is rich, musical, and varied."

Acrylic, Paper, Ink

$1350.00

A single sheet of waxy bond paper sculpted into a somewhat abstracted Solitary Vireo, silhouetted on a striking cobalt teal on rice paper background, and washed with multiple translucent layers of acrylic. Pen & ink detailing emphasizes the allusion of the energy inherent in all living things. One of a series of twelve each bird, through their habits and migration patterns, represent visitors or local residents and offer a perspective of one’s sense of place on a level perhaps not previously explored by the viewer. "The Nester represents permanent residents, locals, and retirees: Phlegmatic, easy-going, nonchalant, desiring a peaceful environment, deliberate, slow moving, neatly constructed nests, both sexes incubate eggs, sing while sitting the nest, not very musical but the most indefatigable of singers, approachable but not overly gregarious, just as likely to migrate with a flock of warblers as with its own kind.”
