Blue bird of Happiness is about the moments that we find of pure content, pure joy with our partner, in our work, walking the dog or petting the cat..... hang this so you see it first thing in the morning to remind you to look up and "see" those moments!
This is a textile linocut collage, on a gorgeous 100% vintage (time stains and all) biscuit beige linen, I have added different fabrics, all printed with my own linocuts ( the birds head is embroidered ) that is, all the patterns etc are made by me. I have freehand embroidered over the flowers and the bird quite extensively, mostly with navy blue thread, but also with a touch of gold to enhance the collage.
It is signed in stitch on the front and comes with a certificate of authenticity.
The collage measures 17.5" x 32.5" ( 45 cm x 83 cm) I have intended for this collage to be framed behind glass to protect the textiles.
This collage arrives carefully wrapped, I roll it up in a mailing tube with tissue paper and a plastic sleeve using many years experience of packaging artwork. I can also add a personal hand written message of your choosing - just mail me your message and I add it to the package. Each collage also arrives with a free blank greeting card featuring one of my works making it easier for you to add a personal touch! I send it with courier so it is with you quickly and can be tracked all the way.
