The Friend Birdie


This piece is a hand-pulled three colored silkscreen print on French paper.
It is from a select edition of 50 prints.
It's measurement are approximately 12" X 16"
The original design was created in August of 2012.
Great detail is taken to hand paint each pair of boots and beak to give each print an identity. Light ink is used to create a texture in these areas to pull the roses forward and add depth to the piece.

The series of birds wearing boots was inspired by an old song called "Tennessee Bird Walk" by Misty Morgan and Jack Blanchard. I would suggest listening to the song while viewing the art.
