These little Sandpipers showed up on our beach on a quiet spring morning, making a quick stop on their way from South America to Canada. Their annual migration is truly amazing: researchers have found that they sometimes fly this route nonstop for six days - that's around 3,000 miles!
They only stayed on our beach for a couple of days, but I spent a lot of time with them, trying to capture both their beauty as individuals and the abstract appearance of them as a group.
My bird images are all traditional photographs, but I love the dreamlike quality of watercolors and have photographed and developed this image in such a way that it more closely resembles a watercolor painting than a photograph.
The image is printed on matte archival cotton rag fine art paper with a 0.5”
- 2” white border (depending on image size) and is signed on the border below the image. The sizes listed are the paper sizes including the border; for example, an 8x10-inch print has 0.5-inch borders, so the size of the image is 7x9 inches. The prints are available unframed or framed, and every order is professionally custom printed.
Framed prints come in a black, white, brown or natural wood frame with or without a white cotton rag mat.
The frames are handmade in the US from top-quality hardwoods and all archival materials. They are custom made to order, with beautiful spline joints and 99% UV-filtering acrylic glass. Depending on print size, the frames have a 1/2" - 1" face and 1 1/2" - 2 1/4" depth. Smaller frames are fitted with D-rings and a wire for hanging; large frames (36x48 inches and up) have a French cleat hanging system.
Framed prints are currently only available in the US and Australia. All Australian orders are printed, framed, and shipped from my lab in Adelaide. The frames at my lab in Australia are also made locally by hand from top quality materials, but some of the details are a bit different from the US frames - please contact me for more information.
FRAMED PRINT SIZES
The sizes listed are print sizes; mats and frames will add to the final size. For example, the final outside size of an 8x10-inch matted and framed print is 12x14 inches. Please see the FAQs for all final framed dimensions.
