Mourning Dove

$ 150.00

Mourning Dove portrait in ornate oval brass vintage frame.  This peaceful dove is rendered in soft beige, brown, tan, and grays, with expressive dark eyes ringed in blue.  Mourning Doves are much more colorful than most realize - with subtle tones and a hint of iridescence on the neck - and the classic black cheek patch that looks like a bird beauty mark.

As a wildlife rehabilitator, I have been privileged to see many of these doves up close, noticing their individual expressions and characteristics.

SIZE: outside of frame is 10.5 x 13.5 inches oval, painting is 7 x 9 inches oval

MEDIA: acrylic painting on panel, varnished

FRAME: brass, vintage, wire attached for hanging
