Bird Paintings

Ashley Dietrich's avian art is largely intended to be a portrait of each individual bird. All pieces are original hand painted artworks (no prints). These bird paintings include owls, song birds, fowl, parrots, ravens, raptors, doves and pigeons, shore birds, exotic birds, and even extinct birds.  

The "saints and royalty" series depicts various birds in regal poses, wearing crowns or enshrined with halos.  These works explore themes of anthropomorphism, reverence, and the importance of an individual though heavy use of embellishment and symbolism.
