Artist's description:

Painted as part of a project to celebrate various US States' flora and fauna.

I have used a vintage map of Iowa dating from between 1875-1889 as the background of this painting. As the map was in pretty good condition but a little small I scanned and restored it digitally before having it professionally printed on archival paper. I then mounted this on artboard before painting my flying goldfinch in a combination of acrylic inks and paints. I tucked the goldfinch to the lefthand side so that as much of the State as possible is still visible.

It is signed in the right hand corner and mounted in a soft white mount that will fit an 14" x 11" frame and protected by a clear artwork bag.

The painting is sold unframed.

Materials used:

acrylic inks and paint and vintage map

Map of Iowa and American Goldfinch mounted 14"x11" (2018)
