“This is the third of my Costa Rica paintings, and unlike the first two (Blue Morphos and Hummingbirds) this was completed back in the UK. The second main base during this wonderful trip to Costa Rica was on the west coast and also happened to be on the routes taken by these magnificent birds to and from their feeding grounds. We saw them every single day we were there, most frequently in the morning and evening. Although, they would occasionally stop and feed on the nuts growing in the trees planted in the garden. They were always seen in pairs, as these birds mate for life, so I had to do a painting of a pair.
I’ve tried to capture them in their environment, as more than two individual birds, but part of a complex, living structure.”
I make all my own frames for my original artworks, I use mouldings, paints and varnishes of the finest specification. The colours are individually selected to match each piece of art, ensuring the best finish possible.
At present, I can only ship to the UK via the website. I can ship to other destinations, but I’ll need you to get in touch, using the contact me form, for a quote if buying from outside the UK.
All the art I sell is packaged extremely carefully, to keep your painting safe for it’s journey, no matter how far. I have years of experience packaging original artworks for transport to all parts of the world, so you can have faith your unique piece of art will arrive safe and sound. This can take some time, especially with original paintings, however, I aim to ship all art within 2 working days.
