NUTHATCHES ON A PINE BRANCH ACRYLICS ON CEDAR W/RED OAK FRAME SUMMER 2019
The nuthatches that live in the conifers around town bring us so much joy. It is such fun to watch their feisty antics. Seemingly fearful of nothing, they refuse to allow us to disturb their daily chores. This painting is the second installment of my Snapshot Series; a series of small paintings highlighting some of our favorite small birds. I made the frame out of red oak using pegged, hand-joined, mortise-and-tenon construction methods. I used the Japanese technique (shou-sugi-ban) of charring and oiling the oak to finish the frame.
