Pygmy Nuthatch, 5x7 on Maple Wood (SOLD but available as a custom order)
Of the three Nuthatch species in the Methow and Washington, the Pygmy, as the name implies, is the smallest, and quite possibly the cutest. Like other nuthatches, these birds are cavity nesters and despite their diminutive size and bill they usually excavate their own holes, though sometimes they use natural-formed cavities, woodpecker holes, or artificial nest boxes.
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 at 5x7and ready to hang and shipping included in price. Other sizes and mediums available.
