22”x30” Silkscreen print, acrylic and oil painting on paper. During my artist residency at the Carnegie Museum of Natural History, I studied research aimed at preventing local bird species, such as this Magnolia Warbler, from colliding with windows. Here the bird's portrait is framed by a silkscreened design of Mountain Laurel (PA’s state flower) and the iconic Pennsylvania keystone. Below the painting are replicas of the museum’s specimen tags - one for each bird of this species added to the museum's collection due to a window strike since 2014.
