Exhibition Preview

Welcome to the exhibition preview of Attracting Birds: Sounds and Skies 
by Lee Moore Crawford. 
All images on this blog are copyrighted by the artist.

Barred Owl, Conical Dipole, collage painting
In my Durham neighborhood, there are a pair of allusive Barred Owls.  The Conical Dipole is a type of antennae, which I think is a fine metaphor for them.

Bird Spaces Two in the Blue, photo painting
In this exhibition there are images of trees and skies.  These are entitled Bird Spaces, relating to the Japanese art of flower arranging, Ikebana, where you have Heaven, Earth and spaces to let the birds fly through.

More previews to come, thanks for visiting!


  1. I love these visions of the sublime magic of birds and their special spaces. Is the tree where the chickadee perches also a cherry tree?

  2. YES it tries to be. I always see Chickadees in craggy old fruit and Dogwood trees. They have lots of little spaces. They can get into tiny holes and will peek out at you.
