“Fowl Play” was inspired by seeing a feather capelet at a fellow photographer’s studio. I thought how funny/ironic it would be to put it on a bird dog. Amazon was quick to provide the required capelet. A few sketches later and I photographed Finch. I used stock images of the bird, chain, and the cage to complete the composite and then painted everything. This image is part of the 2018 International Print Competition General Collection and prints are available in the shop.
