It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas and this adorable little bird is sure to put anyone in the holiday spirit. You can see his joy in the upcoming Christmas season, expressed by the twinkle in his big eyes, the smile on his face and the jaunty tilt of his red Santa hat, with its white trim and tassel. Wintery shades of blue and frost-covered trees fashion a soft background, allowing the tiny bird’s vivid crimson breast and cheerful red hat, along with the colorful red berries in the foreground, to stand out in the snowy scene. This handmade wool painting, with its loveable little Christmas bird, will add charm and merriment to your home during the holiday season. It also makes a great gift for anyone who loves birds and wintertime.
The wool painting “Christmas bird” is an original artwork. Painting size: 10 x 10 inches (25.4 x 25.4 cm). Painting is nicely framed in a white frame and ready to hang. Overall size: 12 x 12 inches (30.5 x 30.5 cm).
I also offer different frames and can switch to the frame of your choice.
To create my paintings, I use a unique technique called “Wool Painting”, also known as “Wool Watercolor”. All of my paintings are made from 100% Merino sheep’s wool by hand placing fine wool fibers layer by layer on the back of the picture frame, covered with glass and inserted into the frame. This process does not use any glue, needle, water, or paint.
Wool paintings carry special warmth and energy as wool is a natural, living material that keeps the mood and warmth of artist’s hands. Wool paintings have useful properties: they relax, soothe, and calm as the viewer pleasantly examines them. A photo of a wool painting does not convey all that can be felt upon close and detailed examination. By owning such painting, you can ask your guests the mysterious question of what material is it made of. They will generally be indecisive on if it is painted in oil or with watercolor, but decidedly delighted when they learn it is natural sheep’s fiber. Wool painting is always a stylish decoration and original gift. It creates an atmosphere of magic and fills your home with comfort.
