Perfect for any birder or poetry reader, this original, mixed media, altered book page features a proud-looking male bluebird perched on a curving branch. He sits amongst a delicate background of sky blue and veiled words.

This one of a kind work of art was created using a mix of medias including watercolour, acrylic, gouache and ink on a vintage book page. This beautiful imagery was inspired by a found poem created from the original words of the book page: "Black and bold. He was beautiful!" The page has been framed in a deep, brassy, faux gold, vintage frame with a protective glass panel. It measures 6.5" x 8.5" x 1" and can be hung on any wall or sit on any table, dresser or shelf with your other other trinkets and treasures.

Want to know a little bit more about Red-Winged Blackbirds? They are sexually dimorphic, which means the male has the gorgeous black, red and orange colouring while the women are speckled tan and brown. A gorgeous specimen of the passerine family, Blackbirds love seeds and insects when it comes to diet. Open grasslands, wetlands and marshlands are where most of these beauties make their homes, because a nest built over water provides extra shelter from predators. During mating, the bright and bold males stake out the perfect nesting site and defends it from others.

This item will be carefully wrapped, protected and packaged for shipping.
