This sculptural piece of art has a surprising musical twist!

A single bird watches the sky change, sitting unhurriedly along a telephone wire made from a guitar string that stretches from end to end. The string is designed to play one note. The bolts on either end are slightly adjustable so if you prefer a particular note, it's customizable. The hardware is such that whatever note you adjust it to, the string's tension will be maintained.

The bird's body is detailed with gray stain, cut from smooth, thin plywood and mounted in relief on a background of the same material. The natural grain of the plywood is interesting, riddled with thin brown lines that look like an illustration. I painted inside these existing lines to accentuate the landscape, differentiating the sky from land and clouds. It was kind of like painting-by-number, without a predetermined outcome.

This piece measures approximately 12" x 26" and is framed in thin gray stained and varnished wood that has a 2.5" depth.
