Teasel Thief II – print



Fine art print on archival paper of an abstracted wildlife painting by Helen  Arthur.  30cm (w) by 56cm (h) / 12″ x 24″ from a limited edition of 50 prints.

The main reason to encourage teasels to grow in our garden is to lure in a charm of goldfinches. They are the most delightful birds with their clown red-daubed faces and pop of golden yellow on their wings. And yes, I have stolen the title of an iconic William Morris design, “Strawberry Thief” featuring thrushes.

This design is one of a pair of prints in a narrow, tall format popular in traditional Japanese printmaking.

I collaged my etching print of the birds and teasels onto an abstracted hedgerow-jungle background to make this mixed media painting on board.
