After the Ice Storm, Salem Oregon, Painting by Jenny Armitage

The Standing and the Fallen (16 x 23 watercolor) $1200 framed; $1000 unframed

This Spring Salem, Oregon had back to back ice storms leading to many downed trees and branches.  While I mourn many of the trees lost, nature’s thinning does have it’s compensations.  One of those is that woods around our house, are an entirely new place, while still remaining beautiful.  This lit up hillside was dark, tangled,  and mossy just months ago.  Now it is bright and open.

Bird Brain, Visual Pun, by Jenny Armitage

Bird Brain (India Ink 14 x 16) $1000 framed; $900 unframed

I have a very visual mind.  When someone says “bird brain,” I’m apt to see something like this.  But I particularly liked this visual pun, because it hints at the intelligence of  birds, which is often as great or greater than mammals with similar lifestyles.  Ironically, owls are not particularly bright birds, but crows, hawks, and ravens are.

Framed in black wood with gray and black mat.

Limited Editions Prints:  8 x 8 $40; 12 x 12 $80.
