Birds & Blossoms 2014 Deluxe Wall Calendar

Birds & Blossoms 2014 Deluxe Wall Calendar Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Bird watching is reported to be the fastest growing outdoor activity in the U.S. with 51.3 million American birders (U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service). In the U.K., the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds has more than 1 million members.

Working in ink, watercolor, soft pastels, colored pencil, and collage, Sherri Buck Baldwin creates artwork that is at once subtle and arresting. She combines broad strokes and incredible detail to connote both realism and a fanciful quality within a single piece.

Sherri Buck Baldwin believes that her Wisconsin garden is incomplete until it's home to all variety of birds. Both serve as inspiration for the twelve drawings she created especially for the Birds & Blossoms 2014 Deluxe Wall Calendar. Each piece of art is done in layers--a transparent one on which she uses colored pencil, and another on which she creates collages of paper ephemera--to give it remarkable depth and nuance.

About the Author

Twenty-five years ago, Sherri realized her dream of working in her home studio, Heart in Hand, Ltd., creating beautiful artwork for calendars, Christmas cards, giftware products and home decor. Her recent move a few miles up the road from Madison, WI, to a new home studio in Windsor is finally completed and the lights are burning late into the night as Sherri works on her latest creations. Although a new studio computer sits proudly nearby, all of Sherri's artwork is created by hand using ink, watercolors, colred pencils, and soft pastells. In addition to the themes of birds and botanicals, Sherri is known for her depictions of Santa Claus and the happy times that surround the Christmas holiday season. She firmly believes that, "If you find work you love, you will nefver have to work another day in your life."
