gold gilded bee-eater sitting amongst purple rain

19 Aug

Today’s framed feathers etsy listing is a stunning Bee-Eater Bird amongst a delicate background of royal purple and airy white drops. This one of a kind work of art was created using a mix of medias including watercolour, acrylic, gouache and ink on rice paper and a 5″ X 7″ canvas board. Want to know a little bit more about the Bee Eater? These near-passerine birds eat insects, but as their same suggests feast predominantly on bees and wasps. Their richly coloured plumage, long tail feathers and fit, slender body make these birds a real pleasure to admire. As extroverted birds, they nest in colonies. They are monogamous birds and raise their young as couples and with the help of other bee-eaters in the community. Purchase this piece and get five automatic entries in my framed feathers giveaway or comment on this post for one entry. For more details about all the freebies click here.

    I’m sure I raved about this guy to you at the show…but just in case I didn’t, I looooove the combination of the purple background and the gold frame with his colors. Such a beauty.
    And the frame in and of itself is such a win – great find!
