"The Garden Gossip” is a triptych of three little garden birds: a sparrow, a willow tit (chickadee), and a starling.
These prints find me once again exploring European folk art themes and motifs. They bring to my mind traditional tapestries and old country homes, especially the ones I remember from my childhood in northern Finland.
The birds look like they have gathered together to exchange the tidings of the world, and maybe to share some gossip, too. That's how I arrived at the name “The Garden Gossip” - after all, in the past, the word gossip used to mean a group of friends!
