matted in acid-free ivory

framed in wide wood under non-reflective museum glass 


Roadrunners are awkward fliers but awesome runners, even on rocky southwest terrain. The 
fierce hunters are both curious and surprisingly colorful birds. When one lets you get close enough, you can see the sunlight sparkling across its feathers. Not quite a peacock, but colorful in its own southwestern way!

about this original watercolor

Non-reflective museum glass virtually disappears on this original watercolor, offering you the optimal viewing experience. The wide, lightly distressed pecan wood frame gives this roadrunner a safe refuge on any wall.
