Did you know that this coming week, 19 - 25 October 2015, is National Bird Week?
Throughout Australia, you can get involved and help our feathered friends by participating in the Backyard Bird Count.
Here at Signarture, we're getting involved too. Not only will we be counting the birds as they come and go from the giant tree outside the studio, with the purchase of any artwork from our Aviary collection, we'll donate 10% of the purchase price to Birdlife Australia in your name.
Above, from our aviary collection, is Pink Cockatoo, also known as Leadbetter's or Major Mitchell's cockatoo. Cacatua leadbeateri to the ornithologists.
This fine art print on perspex above was mounted with satin gold hardware - a special order option where the mounts are plated with 24 carat gold. We love how they offset the stunning soft white and salmon pink plumage of this this beautiful and elegant Australian native.
Photographed in an outdoor setting in strong sunlight, the transparent perspex medium brings this pair to life, giving them stunning depth of colour and by casting their natural shadows.
Of course if you would like to support the birds but aren't ready to purchase an artwork, you can make a donation directly via this link.
