Artist's description:

Oil on canvas 16h x 20w inches by contemporary artist Sara Richardson

My Small Creature Series is about imagined relationships between birds or other creatures...and even creating the potential for a character to live outside of the canvas in the viewers imagination. The seemingly simplistic compositions are loaded with what’s happening between the creatures. As if a drama is unfolding. My entire objective is to venture into a realm where I am creating complex emotional exchanges however obvious or profoundly subtle.

I originally began with birds in different positions including one or two that were either sleeping, ill or passed away depending on the viewers interpretation. I’m not afraid to paint sorrow or tragedy. Since then, I have several canvases in the mix that are just plain sweet. Not synthetic sweet, but endearingly playful sweet.

Your painting:

{+} Will be carefully packaged including a pH neutral barrier to protect the surface

{+} Signed with small "R" on the front / full signature and date on the back

{+} Sides of the painting cleaned and painted black

{+} I believe having precious artwork like Small Birds Study No.2 framed helps protect the painting from potential damage however, if you would like me to wire the back so you can hang it immediately, please send me a message.

There are quite a few paintings in the Small Creatures Series, if you are interested in purchasing more than one, please contact me. I can try to create a multiple purchase discount code for you.
