Wool painting “Red bullfinch” features a winter’s morning where a handsome bullfinch, with his bright red breast, grey wing, little black cap, and long tail, is perched on the snowy branch of an ash tree and enjoying his breakfast. Wintery shades of blue make up the soft backdrop of the image and the light-lilac colored tree branches in the background are reminiscent of frosty patterns on window glass. The bright red and orange shades of the rowan berries and bird’s breast will draw your eyes to this painting and prompt a closer examination of the texture provided by the wool fibers. The wool painting “Red bullfinch” will be an attractive addition to your home’s décor and is sure to draw the attention of your guests. This beautiful artwork would make a great gift for anyone that enjoys birds, nature and winter theme.

I also offer different frames and can switch to the frame of your choice.
You can also buy the wool painting as is, without frame and glass. To keep the painting safe during shipping, a plexiglass cover will be used to protect the fibers. You can then use the frame of your choice to display the image.
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.
