Open-ended series of bird-themed collages. Most recently, I've been juxtaposing antique and vintage black & white images of birds with color ones. The combination of the rich, dense 19th century engravings (most of them from children's magazines) with lush chromolithographs of the same era highlights the beauty of each.

Each is made on a cradled, hardwood panel. The collages are protected by multiple layers of acrylic sealer and the sides of the panels are sealed with a matte, clear varnish that shows off the wood's natural color and grain.

All are ready to hang.
