Rick Ayotte 2012 “After the Storm” painted landscape with cardinal magnum paperweight. A wintry landscape of bare trees, snow-covered fields and billowing white snow clouds forms the painted glass ground against which a brilliant red, three-dimensional cardinal becomes the focus. Just beneath the dome and resting on a perch of snow-dusted pine needles, this crimson bird is evoked within the vocabulary of conventional lampwork artistry and then very poetically and originally juxtaposed against a flat painted glass ground. Edition #1 of 1. Signed/dated. Diameter 4 1/4".
