This picture showcases a family of birds with the mother feeding her young surrounded by a vibrant collection of botanicals – some of which were received from a flower swap with a fellow artist in South Africa. The birds are flowers from the crotalaria plant, also known as rattlebox. The only addition to the birds were the eyes. Other botanicals include cosmos, Queen Anne’s Lace, maidenhair fern, hydrangea and miscellaneous ferns, moss and leaves. The background is adorned with hand-made paper. This piece was sealed between a layer of mylar and 99% UV acrylic.
