I keep doves as pets.  One day, after one was finished bathing, I photographed the bird in this pose. I was struck by the intensity of the bird’s gaze and the position of the wings and feet, so I created this homage.


This original artwork was designed, carved, and printed by Lyell Castonguay.  Ink is applied to a carved wooden block and hand-pressed onto Thai Mulberry Paper.  Multiple carved blocks layer colors, resulting in a dramatic effect.  The artwork is signed, titled, and numbered in pencil by the artist.
