plump young bird
Timorous Beastie #2
Oil and mixed media on Oil Paper
22 x 30

Plump little baby bird fluffy his downy feathers wondering when they will work properly! I am drawn to the dichotomy of cuteness and savagery that exist in the bird world. Such seemingly delicate creatures we fetishize and yet their tenacious lives of survival and competition is so at odds with that image we have created. I love them all and admire their tenacity-little cuties!!
My painting method of mixing media, and using brushes, skewers to create dramatic sgraffito effects express my love and desire to really get to know their lives and instill of the their own tenacity in me!

This piece is framed, shadow box style in a contemporary maple frame.
