I’ve been spending a lot of time in this year of isolation learning more about the birds that populate our local skies. Of these avian neighbors, the Red-Winged Blackbird, with its friendly call, has become a favorite. In this time of loneliness and uncertainty, there’s something comforting in the reassurance that come morning in springtime, there will be familiar birdsong and friends at our feeders.
“The Red-Winged Blackbird” has been hand-drawn, carved, pressed, and colored on natural Lokta paper using a light-fast Black vegetable-oil based ink and Carmine Red, Yellow Ochre, and Light Cerulean Blue hued archival, light-fast ink. Arriving in your mailbox matted and ready to frame or gift, this print measures 5″ x 7″ in total size.
