A red-throated Ruby Hummingbird stalks his prey.
Sure, hummingbirds are cute and amazing, but some of them have a little territorial streak in them. We are small and fierce.
Each painting is composed using several layers of epoxy and pigment to make a slightly three-dimensional painting. This gives the painting presence. A gentle shadow is cast by this piece on the wall, making the creature come to life. Sealed with a high gloss epoxy makes this painting resilient to dust and water.
Our little birds arrive home framed. The steel hand-brushed frame, giving this delicate painting on glass is held within a modern weathered industrial feel. The frame is made by the blacksmith and glass artist, Katie Richardson of Blue Barn Studio in Hadley, MA. Each of these pieces is a one of a kind creation of collaboration of two creators who strive to continue being strong assets to the local creative economy of Western Massachusetts.
