My father is very handy…even going so far as to build his own home. While walking my dog along my father’s forested property in Bridgewater, Vermont, I spied one of his many handcrafted birdhouses sitting in the open, and at the top, in coppery end-of-day shadow, was a lone bluebird. It seemed like such a unique opportunity - My father made the actual birdhouse, nature made the bird...now I'm able to honor both and put their efforts in paint! These prints and cards would be perfect for the gardener, birder or nature lover in your life.
Choose from 5” x 7” open edition and 8" x 10,” and 11" x 14" limited edition size prints. Limited edition prints are on bamboo paper and come numbered, titled and signed by artist, either with or without a mat and frame. Open edition prints are not numbered, but are titled and signed by the artist and can also be framed. Unframed 5” x 7,” 8” x 10” and 11” x 14” prints come with an archival backer and ship flat. Unframed 16" x 20" print ships rolled without a backer.
Framed prints are matted with an archival off-white mat and backer, under glass, and live edge frame is completely ready to hang. Mat and frame adds approximately 8” to each side; For example, an 8" x 10" print once framed is approximately 16” x 18." Frame dimensions are approximate due to the variability of widths in the live edge wood; No two frames are alike. Artist-crafted frame is made from rescued slab wood, wood that is normally burned as sugaring wood or bonfires. Frame is finished in three coats of Vermont poly-whey varnish, a USDA certified biobased product. Note: Photo of framed print shows a different print image but is to show my handcrafted mat and frame style.
Inside of cards are left blank, ready for your personalization. Card measures approximately 5 1/4" x 4" and is printed on recycled white cardstock. A recycled white envelope is included with each card.
