Whooping It Up! Crane Style
By Evergreen, Colorado Artists Barb and Tom Adkins

Whooping Crane Bookends.

Each one of the bookends has a different painting of a pair of Whooping Cranes. The jumping Cranes are doing their Mating Dance.

Using the Oak Board, gave me a chance to use the grain of the wood as the clouds in the sky.

Whooping Cranes are endangered and are the largest bird in the US. They live near water,in the Wetlands,because they love to eat the fish and crawdads.

The gold rim is painted with 14 kt gold paint.

These bookends are quite heavy because the base in slate. They can support many books, large or small.

The slate bottom and backside of the boards are covered in black felt to protect your desk or bookshelf surface and the books.

$275.00 for the set
