Chorus Frog Spring Song (art print on canvas 12x12 in.)
Chorus Frogs are one of our smallest spring songsters, much more often heard than seen. Similar to the "X" marked Spring Peepers, but with stripes, its call is a series of clicks with a rising cadence, called a "trill". Aleta's painting brings it alive, larger than life, to rejoice in the passionate vitality of this tiny dweller of shallow marshy ponds.
Painted on commission for a colleague who researches them, Aleta is offering this print of her oil painting to support our work on Chorus Frogs. She and her husband Fred Schueler started to notice the decline of their populations in the 1990s, and now the eastern species is listed as "Threatened".
This canvas print is sure to make a statement in any space. It's hand-stretched on a poly-cotton blend canvas with a matte finish coating.
I’ve really bonded to this mama Snapping Turtle - she’s got me thinking about the lives of turtles, their vulnerabilities and hardships. Read my blog post at https://karstaddailypaintings.blogspot.com/?m=1
