Northern Parulas are smallish warblers that inhabit the upper canopies of trees in the eastern half of the U.S.  Long distance migrants, they commute from N. America to Mexico, Central America, and the Caribbean in the winter.  As with many songbirds, it is amazing that this small bird flies across the Gulf of Mexico two times every year.  Life size, a single plate etching hand colored.

"Northern Star"

    Image size: 4 ½” x 6 ½” This etching is hand-made on 1 copper plate, using 2 different ink colors.  In addition to the Arches rag paper used for the etching, the inks and paints employed to create the etching are of the highest quality.  Each etching requires over an hour to paint with transparent watercolors.  Because of all the hand work involved, no two pieces are exactly the same.  The finished etching has a 1 1/4” border of paper around the image with a beautiful, deckled edge

The glass is high quality museum glass to greatly reduce glare and protect the art from fading. The back is sealed with a mounting wire attached and ready to hang.
