CARVED AND PAINTED BIRDS, LOT OF TWO, comprising a "Killdeer" and a "Sanderling", each standing on a piece of weathered wood. Each signed, inscribed, and dated by artist. Dated 2005. 9" and 7" HOA.
Provenance: Collection of the late John and Lil Palmer, Purcellville, VA. Purchased directly from the artist.
Catalogue Note: Jose Rodriguez-Velez is a contemporary bird carver and ornithologist who currently lives in Green Bank, WV with his wife and son. Born in Puerto Rico, Jose studied biology and ornithology, eventually working in the remote forest of Rio Abajo on the island in an effort to manage an endangered flock of parrots. He is a recognized artist who, in his own words, tries to "show the grace and essence of the subject" in his work. John and Lil Palmer discovered Rodriguez-Velez on one of their many trips to Green Bank (he is a neighbor of Jim and Katy Sheppard) and became enthusiastic patrons as a result.
