“Nothing to Egret” is a coastal bird painting. An original acrylic on canvas, it measures 24″ X 48″. The feathers of this regal egret are wispy in detail and pop off the deep rich turquoise background. The egret is surrounded by a dense marsh of cattails and thistle. Not to mention, three delicate dragonflies flutter about. Additionally, he is perched on a large driftwood branch.
“Nothing to Egret” is painted in a Modern Chinoiserie style. Artist Allison Cosmos mixes traditional Chinoiserie with lively color palettes and scientific illustration compositions. Her current focus of work is endangered and extinct species. In the early 1900s, their plumes were so popular that the species was almost wiped out. Egrets are now protected by the Migratory Bird Act. This ended plume hunting in the United States.
