Parrots in Paradise

Parrots in Paradise

This is such a rich, lushly decorative piece, a fitting environment for these two saintly little parrots.  I stumbled across photos of orange-bellied parrots which are so beautifully colored.  Unfortunately, they're endangered in their native south Australia.

In my tribute to these sweet little birds, I decided to work with a color palette built around red-violet - a color that I seldom use.

 

I built the collage around my two paintings of the parrots.  Other elements include image fragments from magazines and catalogs, cut shapes, printed tissue paper, text from old books, painting, and pen work.

The collage is on a cradled wood panel which measures 15 3/4" x 24".  It is 1 1/4" inches deep and finished on the sides.  I designed it to hang unframed.

Add this unique and charming piece of original art to your collection for $575 (free shipping within the continental US).
