Grackle and Brushes
Acrylic painting, collage, inks.
This bird was inspired by a striking antique silver tea caddy. The head was made removable to the hollow body for tea storage. The craftsmanship of that bird is quite exquisite, very life-like, and closely resembles a grackle. It posed for a number of my still lives.
Cradled wood board, 0.75" deep. Unframed. Gallery-style painted sides. Wired and ready to hang.
