FEBRUARY: Yellow-bellied sapsucker, stag beetle & spanish moss

Yellow-bellied Sapsucker heads south from Canada looking for a warm place to spend the winter.  Arriving in the swamp, this woodpecker is clearly not a local.  He stands out with his loud an funny accent (mew-mew-mew), red head, mustache and preference for drinking all day.  If he were to open a bar, it would certainly be called the ‘Sap & Lap’. And what a busy bartender - making rows of deep sap flows all day.  With such a high carb drink on tap he would be sure to draw a lush crowd.  Sap lovin’ Stag Beetle would be a regular.  Spanish Moss and lichen, those epiphytical fixtures, would never leave!  But sap is not their taste, both preferring continuous cocktails of Humidity Fizz and Rainwater Martinis.  The favorite guests would be the large parties of ant, as they sip they get dipped - the freshest of bar food.  What a tip!

1 of 3 in the WINTER Collection from Seasons of a Cypress - a series of 12 connected images. 9 images are currently complete.

The original images were created with Mississippi mud and plants and scanned to permanently capture the fresh bright colors of berries, flower petals and leaves pushed into the paper.

color sources to create include: poke salad leaves, red hill dirt, bitterweed, white throated day flower & burned meadow grass

They are stand alone designs or can be arranged as one large cypress tree. The images are in seasonal collections, each month featuring a bird/plant/insect relationship.

9 x 9 digital print, mounted with acid-free glue on book binder’s board, then mounted flush on a handmade pine frame, with 1 in depth. Flush mount allows for side-by-side display, or for stand alone display on a bookshelf or table.
