My Backyard Birds

This Raptors of the Sierra Nevada Mountains series was painted in 2022 in my California studio with watercolor on textured watercolor ground board.  This series is framed with matching custom rustic wood frames.  Each piece measures 7.25 x 9 inches without and 11 x 13 with the frame.  The paintings are sealed with UV protecting varnish and are meant to be displayed as they are - not behind glass.   I made the frames myself from very old boards gathered from Big Rock Ranch.  The boards reveal their gold rush mining country past by displaying a variety of nail holes, worm and bug holes, dings, cracks and gouges.  They have the exact look I wanted for this Sierra Raptor bird series.
