Sparrow Cleaning

by Patricia Howitt

Art Print

DESCRIPTION

Collect your choice of gallery quality Giclée, or fine art prints custom trimmed by hand in a variety of sizes with a white border for framing.

Sparrow engaged in the all-important job of feather maintenance. I nearly didn't put this picture up, because the piece sold almost as soon as it was framed, and the only record I have is an old slide, taken thru the glass and not very sharp on the scan I've got. Glad I did my best with it and put it in!

I had this bird for a few months, after bringing him up when he fell from the nest. All of these works are drawn from life sketches. Bird, sparrow, feathers, preen, portrait, drawing, graphite, pencil.

Thank you so much Ana! You know, the word 'preen has been overtaken by its human connotations. For birds, it's an essential necessity for survival on the wing :-)).
