Cheeky and the Long-tailed Tit Giclée Art print
This archival-quality Giclée print
comes on Haemulid German Etching 310-gram heavyweight sustainable paper.
The heavyweight, high-quality paper has a warm tone and a mottled texture which enables it to hold more ink and capture the light, ensuring strong, vibrant colours and deep blacks that are high in contrast.
Having experimented with many giclée papers I have found that this particular paper really suits the high vibrational colours of the work. Each print is numbered and is signed in pencil by the artist. The first limited edition run is of 100.
Prints come unframed.
Available in two sizes: A4 (£50) and A3 (£100).
A4 size print measures 21.0 x 29.7cm/ 8.27 x 11.69 inches.
A3 size print measures 29.7 x 42.0cm, 11.69 x 16.53 inches.
About the artwork
Blackbird represents a portal - a genuine route into the unified realms of nature and the long-tailed tit represents a call to follow one's heart and break through into the spiritual realms.
The blackbird is named Cheeky after one who visits my garden on a regular basis and who I have a deep connection with. I observe noisy family groups of long-tailed tits all the time. They come to my garden to feed off the bird table and occasionally peck at their own reflections in window panes.
This image was created following a deep shamanic journey. In shamanic traditions, a journey is a dream-like meditation often facilitated using a rhythmic, hypnotic drum beat – a process known in some traditions as ‘riding the shaman’s horse’ (the shaman’s horse being the drum as a mode of transport to realms of 'otherness' or 'non-ordinary reality' to quote the visionary Carlos Castaneda).
