Introduced to the east coast of the United States in 1851, it took only 50 years for the species to spread westward to the Rocky Mountains. A symbol of good luck in many cultures, they are easily spotted in urban settings among homes, and open spaces alike.
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 is then hand painted premium Arches 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. Mat is sized to fit a standard 8"X10" frame.
