"Fantastic Birds”
8.75" x 12" x .5"
Acrylic on gallery-wrapped canvas

This is an original painted with fine artist's acrylics on stretched gallery-wrapped canvas. The painting doesn't need a frame as the canvas is wrapped around the 1/2" deep sides, and painted. There are no staples visible.

This painting is very special to me...I haven't put it up for sale before as I wanted to keep this one for the philosophy it represents to me. I believe the right person may appreciate it as I have for some of the same reasons, so here it is for your consideration.

To me, birds represent the human spirit. These birds are inquisitive, brightly feathered and healthy, and exploring a curving fast-growing plant with cup-shaped flowers. To me the plant represents health and personal growth or whatever good things I'm thinking about that week. It's like a mandala for me.

The paint is textured on the birds' feathers and in the background. The swirly blue sky is painted with iridescent paints and there are flecks of iridescent paint on the birds' feathers. This gives those spots a very soft sparkle that really shows up in bright light or as you view the painting from different sides. It's soft and pearly, not glittery. The sides of the painting are painted with a brilliant turquoise blue which extends to the front of the painting...it's a little quirky trim of blue paint on the edges as viewed from the front of the painting.

The painting is ready to hang and I can attach hanging frame wire on the back if you prefer. Just let me know!
