Winter is the favorite time of year for bullfinches and you can easily catch sight of them in my wool painting, “Two bullfinches”. When trees are dressed up in snowy clothes, it’s impossible not to notice the bird’s bright red and black feathers against the background of snow-white frost. In the painting, the pair of colorful bullfinches have now arrived and settled down on a snow-covered branch. The birds are funny looking, puffed up against the cold weather and they remind one of living balls that swing on branches. These two handsome bullfinches would love to take up residence in your house, or join a family member or friend in theirs. The sight of these bright winter birds is sure to delight you in any weather, lift your spirits on a daily basis and create the atmosphere of a real winter fairy tale inside your home!
The wool painting “Two bullfinches” is an original artwork. Painting size: 14 x 11 inches (35.6 x 27.9 cm).
- Black frame – Overall size: 15 ¾ x 12 ¾ inches (40 x 32.4 cm).
- Black frame with double matting – Overall size: 19 x 15 inches (48.26 x 38.1 cm).
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.
