The Bay-breasted Warbler takes a flight path each year from the eastern half of North America to Cuba, the Caribbean, and South America.  Their population is tied to its primary food source, the spruce budworm, and goes up and down with the insect population.  This is a single plate etching hand-colored with transparent watercolors showing the bird life size.

"Rusty Morning"

  • Technical Art Information:

    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 and 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.

  • Framing:

    Archival framing using supreme materials. The wood moulding is custom made with an ebony finish and subtle wood grain. The mat is an archival 8-ply museum rag, and the mounting mat is an archival matt black. The etching is floated to display an elegant, deckled edge of the beautiful rag paper that the etching is printed on. 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.
