ABOUT THE WORK
These colorful tiny birds dive deep to catch fish in the water. I was drawn to their natural complimentary color scheme and choose to accent it with a fish scale pattern in the background done with silver leaf. The silver will appear brighter or darker depending on the light in the room and adds depth and dimension.
Acrylic and silver leaf on wood panel. .
Coated with an archival, gloss varnish. Birch frame with keyhole carved into the back of the panel for hanging.
