This is my original pastel painting of a beautiful bird on a Branch with a cold wintry background. The painting itself is app. 8"x 10" with enough boarder to allow for matting and framing. This is for the painting only, matting and frame is NOT included due to risk during shipping. Your painting will be shipped in a acid free sleeve wrapped in Glassine (to prevent smudging) and placed in sturdy rigid stay-flat mailer. This is a one of a kind painting.

Their are hundred year old pastel paintings that are just as vivid as when they were painted.
