Stone Bird

Stone Bird by Anne Popperwell giclee print from East Point, Saturna Island, 11"15"

I moved to Saturna Island many years ago to paint the eroded sandstone formations at East Point. I was, and still am, enchanted by the sense of flowing stone and it's resemblance to the human body. As the stone is worn by the sea, I chose to use watercolour as my medium for this series and experimented until I found a paper with a texture that recalled the fine grained sandstone. 
Recently I've published a giclée print of this painting, "Stone Bird" which I will be exhibiting at our Thanksgiving show.
