931 Early Bird

931 Early Bird


Early Bird was inspired by the painting, The Goldfinch by Carel Fabritius, in 1654. Fabritius was a student of Rembrandt and also supposedly Vermeer's teacher. In his painting the bird is chained to its perch, however, in mine it is not. In my version, the bird  has caught his breakfast and with a watchful eye, intends to keep it. The image is free machine embroidered with hand dyed threads on a background painted in archival inks.
