Western Meadowlark, 8x10 on Maple Wood (SOLD but available as a custom order)
Western Meadowlarks are some of the first birds to come back to the Methow in early spring, and they aren't shy about announcing their arrival. For many of us in the Methow they are a favorite bird, partly for their size and bright yellow and black chests, but mostly for their loud, melodious song that travels great distances across the shrub-steppe. A few years ago, I was not surprised to learn that they are in the Blackbird Family, which is generally a flashy, loud and gregarious group. Watch for meadowlarks singing from the tops of bitterbrush, sage, fences and poles, but watch your step too because they nest on the ground!"
This is a digitally modified photograph so that the image looks like a painting. I often work in this medium, which takes a lot of time and experimentation, and I love it for certain images. It creates an artsy and unique look. This is printed on maple wood, making the print even more artistic with striations of the wood grain showing through the image. Priced as a 8x10 and ready to hang. Shipping included in price. Other sizes and mediums available.
