Fine Art Painter

Pretty Bird

10″ x 8″ Watercolor Batik

These beautiful paintings are created on fine Japanese rice papers (the thicknesses of which are only between 11 – 34 gauge), instead of fabric, which is used in traditional batiks.  Additionally, watercolors are used instead of dyes, with a wax resist, allowing beautiful translucent colors (along with rich vibrant hues which are built up with multiple layers of watercolor), to show throughout the paintings.  This method of painting takes about five times the amount of time it would take to create a standard watercolor painting.

The Western Mountain Blue Bird represents a very resilient animal in our kingdom— because of how well it has adapted to being chased out of its own natural habitat–due to the cutting down of trees and the warming of the regions it originally inhabited.  Until the mid 1900’s, it lived in the forests of the northern Rocky Mountains of Colorado, and heavily forested areas of nearby states.  It has adapted to warmer and more open environments. Their nests are often attacked by house sparrows.
