Joshua Ludke: Cedar Waxwing

Madison artist, art teacher, hiker and birder, Joshua Ludke, has spent 3 years painting a wondrous series of Wisconsin birds. He is offering several of them to high bidders. This is a painting/wood carving of a Cedar Waxwing. Joshua: "I found bird forms in the wood I collected. Wings, feathers and beaks leaped out of the wood grain and asked to be painted and sometimes carved. In the first dozen or so pieces, I painted some imagined birds along with some real bird species. The more I painted, the more appreciation and longing I had to see the real birds, and so I started researching and decided I would take on the task of painting all of the birds who live in or visit our state. I spread the wood pieces all around my studio and tried to figure out which bird species' structure, color and personality fit the particular block of wood."
