Description

"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!

Lovely art, well packed

I am so thrilled to own this set. I was watching the carvings on Instagram and knew I was going to order. My set has the same numbers (yeah!) and they were so well packed so they made it safely to the USA. I hope to get them framed soon. Thank you so much!

My artist wife was blown away by the quality of Maarit's work, from the art itself to the packaging it shipped in. Would definitely recommend!

LOVE

I love art in more pieces (like diptychs and triptychs) and linoleography and birds. So The Garden Gossip was a must have. Very good package and shipping.
