THE INSPIRATION - REK continues in his finely detailed photo realistic approach in this piece featuring a wild superb wren photographed by career wildlife photographer -Martin Anderson.Set against a REK's signature fabric backgrounds, this time a Chinoiserie inspired blue and white pattern creates a language between the subject and the patterns it cohabitates. The beauty of nature is married to manmade beauty in the repeating botanical patterns which have been obscured with a whitewash of impasto gel, they become a hazy memory of the vibrant blue they once were.Rek's signature photo The Hyper realistic wren is painted from photo reference material, The iridescent quality of the subjects feathers is expertly captured by REK using a myriad of colors to create a luminous effect.

Inspite of the darkness we all face at times in life, there is always a reason to smile and be happy, and no one has a bigger smile than a Hyacinth macaw.
