oil and collage on cradled panel
Original oil painting.
Unframed, cradled panel sides are finished with clear varnish.
Painting is wired and ready to hang.
Signed, titled and dated on back.
While birds have long been prominent in my work, I recently made a shift where I began focusing more closely on the birds, presenting them more as portraits by bringing the viewer in closer view of the bird. Collage elements are still present, like the decorative flourish that contrasts this belted kingfisher.
