The Blue Jay is easily identifiable by it's stunning blue plumage, and loud, raucous call. This intelligent corvid is often portrayed as a trickster in Native American legends and folklore because of it's gregarious attitude and curious nature.
This beautiful collage begins as a hand cut lino block that is inked and run through an etching press. The embossed image is then hand painted with professional, lightfast watercolors; and the background meticulously cut and removed. A new background has been created using acrylic paint, inks, and watercolor on premium Fabriano watercolor paper. Finally, everything is collaged together to complete the work.
Artwork is museum mounted using an acid free mat and backing material, ready for framing. Overall mat is sized to fit a standard 8"X10" frame.
