Reserved for Jennifer! On Sale Now! Was $70... Now $56! This original 5x7 oil on canvas celebrates dusk while it also honors the everyday bird, the grackle, whose feathers glisten with many wondrous colors, like the colors in the sky at sunset. Dusk is my favorite time of day, whether I'm relaxing outside in the garden in the warmer months, or as winter approaches, cozying up to the woodstove as the dark of night slowly expands over the landscape. So I have included my feelings about that wondrous time with the addition of original poetry.

Title: The Grackle's Tale
Size: 5x7 on professional canvas
Medium: Oils with Oil Paint Pen and varnish

The text was hand painted with oil paint pen in white, so that it almost shimmers, like the fading sunlight, against the blue background of the painting. "The Grackle's Tale" has been signed on the side of the canvas (all edges painted), and on the back you will find the title, my full signature, and date. It is wired on back and ready to hang.

It will be shipped inside a sturdy mailing box with much protective padding. Within the continental U.S., shipping includes insurance.

Frequently asked questions about KneeDeepOriginals

I am happy to create a custom painting for you. Simply contact me with your interests and needs, and we can get started on a piece that will be perfect for you and your home or for a gift.
All of my art is carefully and lovingly packaged to keep it safe while it travels to you. I also work hard to prepare a package that you will be delighted to receive and open. If you purchase something to give as a gift and would like it gift-wrapped, simply let me know and I will be sure to make it extra special and to include a gift tag and note.
My acrylic paintings are finished with at least two coats of varnish to protect the artwork from harmful UV rays, dust and dirt. All you need to do is gently wipe them from time to time with a dry, soft cloth. My unframed watercolors are sealed inside clear, archival pouches upon completion and adequate dry time. They are shipped to you this way. I recommend acid-free mats and glare-free glass when you mat and frame them. If I have framed them already, you can rest assured that they are given the ultimate care in mat and frame choice.
Each listing lets you know what size the artwork is. Please be sure to read the detailed description for each listing you are interested in so you can be certain that the size of the painting is what you are looking for and will fit your needs.
