This exquisit original acrylic painting, which you will find hanging in the our dining room, is by renown Zimbabwean wildlife artist Jenny Preston. Jenny specializes in African and other exotic birds and wildlife, and this particular piece is a stunning example of her knowledge and mastery of her subject! The rich shades of blue with green undertones surround the subject creating a calm, peaceful--even maternal--mood. My meager digital photography does not come close to portraying the rich colors and detail of the actual painting!
Helmeted Guinea Fowl Nesting has been professionally framed by award winning artisans with an exquisit 2.75 inch matting of deep blue suede which accentuates the softness of the painting and a frame of black beaded wood that intimates the spots of the bird. A black 1/4 inch inside matting adds the final touch. The framed dimensions are 20 x 22.5 inches.
