Passerina is a mixed media painting combining hand embroidery and paint on canvas. At 8 X 10 inches, it's an interpretation of the beauty of colorful birds.
Stitched by hand, the bird head and body stand out, literally coming off of the painted canvas. The perle floss used for stitching has a beautiful luminosity making a gorgeous contrast with the matte finish of the paint.
Alive with color in turquoise, red, green, orange, yellow and various shades of blue, the painting is inspired by all the amazing varieties of bunting birds, in fact all of the passerine birds, each one more exquisite than the next.
