Don Briddell (American, b. 1944) has been a much renowned duck decoy carver. In 1985 several developments came together to convince Don that it was time to found Overboard Art. He became aware of the amazing ability of specially designed resins that could reproduce exactly the finest detail of a woodcarving. The reproduced piece was not as expensive to make as a woodcarving and yet when expertly painted, could rival the quality of the original. This is a fine example.
Country of Origin: United States.
Title: "Little Rock" Eastern Bluebird.
Medium: Sculptural resins and high quality acrylic paints.
Size: 6" by 5" by 6 1/2".
Mr. Briddell has said (in his "About Us" section of the website for his company Overboard Art) "Bird art may not be considered fine art, but everyone from all walks of life can enjoy it. Particularly in the United States nature is highly regarded. It is precious to us and we lead the world in trying to conserve and protect it. Let us never forget that Nature is our connection to life. As one of Overboard Art’s pieces called “Sanctuary” states, “Human Nature (is) protecting Mother Nature”. Protecting Mother Nature in America is understood as a form of self-protection."
