Snowy Sheathbill, Preening

from 35.00

Painted while I was living in the Antarctic.  These are strange little birds, snowy white and about the size of a chicken, who live in burrows on the Antarctic peninsula.  They eat everything disgusting that you can imagine- their niche is to eat anything that would normally rot, and they are also enthusiastic thieves.  That being said, they're charming.  They make a distinctive sound that sailors described as "Mutt, Mutt" and they are utterly fearless around humans, stealing your pen and exploring your bag for any goodies they can scurry away with.  They spend a lot of time bathing, which is a good thing in a snow-white little bird that eats a lot of poo.

Here's what you're getting:
100% archival quality giclée print made for me by a local PDX color and printing wizard.  Really nice, heavy, paper and we color-check everything against the original paintings.
Shipped flat via priority mail.
3 sizes available - 9x12, 10x14, and 12x16, or contact me and I may be able to make you a custom size.  Unframed.
