This art, "Cool of the Morning", originally painted by Dave Bartholet, gives you a glimpse into the still and peaceful morning routine of this beautiful bird. The vibrant early sky colors blend with the texture of the wood to create rustic and warming decor for your walls that will invite you to lean in and take a closer look.
Cool of the Morning is a collage of individual wood boards, giving it grains and knots unique to every piece. These boards are then secured together using two wood strips running along the back of the art. In addition to tightly securing the art together, these wood strips also allow the piece to sit slightly off your wall and help it naturally frame itself.
When we craft this piece, we use no whites in the image, instead, we allow the natural coloration of the wood to take its place so that the beauty of the wood isn’t overtaken by the image. This creates an interplay of texture and color creating art that lives so naturally on the wood, you might think it grew there.
Since we use kiln-dried wood and all-weather UV-protected ink, you can accent any part of your indoor or outdoor living space with this art for years to come.
Dave Bartholet, a self-taught artist, showed up on the planet in 1949. Having spent his early childhood in Wyoming, his love for wildlife was forged from the get-go. In 1971 he started his journey as a professional artist selling his original watercolors through galleries and eventually art shows throughout the west.
His loose style of watercolors has proven to be very popular with an estimated 100,000 households that collect his work.
All of our products are made at our design & build studio at the foot of the cascades in Sisters, Oregon. The wood we use when crafting this wall hanging art is sourced from around the Northwest.
Hanging hardware is included and the piece is ready to be hung up from the moment it arrives.
We make the product to order. With this in mind, we try to craft, package, and ship your product within 2-3 business days from the day the order was placed.
