Telling us all about dreams and wishes, the blackbird sings, of love and adventure, of life and success, if you sit really still and listen, it sings to you.
This is a textile linocut collage, on a textured 100% black linen, I have added different fabrics, all printed with my own floral linocuts, that is, all the patterns etc are made by me. I have freehand embroidered the bird and over the flowers quite extensively, with a lime green thread and a dark olive thread, to enhance the collage. The bird and details are embroidered in shiny thread so it glints a bit.
It is signed in stitch on the front and comes with a certificate of authenticity.
The collage measures 20" x 35" ( 50 cm x 90 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. 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.
