Ruffled Feathers: Handpainted European Bee-eater birds on Vintage Cabinet Door



This vibrant pair of birds comes to life on a vintage, repurposed cabinet door! Who'd have thought that cabinet doors could find new life as artwork?? They're rather perfect for the task, being solid wood, already framed, and are ready to hang using the original hinges, if you like!

In this scene, two European Bee-eaters are having an animated discussion...perhaps someone brought home the wrong kind of bug for dinner, or there's a dispute about whose turn it is to sit on the branch? You can decide what you think the story is here!

With a mottled soft green background, the birds jump into the foreground with their jewel-like coloring--almost literally, as the wings and tails extend right out of the picture and up onto the weathered black frame. Vivid tones of red, gold, and turquoise give the feathered pair presence and texture, and turn this old door into a completely one of a kind piece of art.

Dimensions are 16.5" x 21.5". Piece is signed and numbered for authenticity.
