Artwork Description

As the title implies, the Winter Wren is secretive in it’s habits, tending to be well hidden in thick undergrowth of moist forests. It’s a tiny bird, about the size depicted in the painting. I took advantage of this by further freeing it of distracting elements, all the better to appreciate the subtle but lovely markings, and the stubby, tail-raised form that is so characteristic of this family of birds.
