Bird Buddy

Spring Hofeldt’s study of the offbeat characters of the animal kingdom casts these ostriches as your loveably awkward friends or favorite social critics. Against a vibrant orange backdrop, Ned levels his gaze and purses his beak as if to say “meh.” Each ostrich portrait is printed using acid-free paper and presented under an acid-free mat and Bonanza wood frame. Made in the USA.

Spring Hofeldt may be a realistic painter, but she gravitates toward surreal forms. Case in point: ostriches. “I’m drawn to bizarre and quirky animals,” says the Brooklyn-based artist. “Ostriches have a very powerful presence, from their towering size and quick step, to their large, bold, deep black eyes that have a lock on your every move.” The wackier the subject, the closer it brings Spring to her goal: joy in the eye of the beholder. “I hope it makes them chuckle, giggle, snort, laugh out loud, or smile on the inside,” she says of her work. Playfulness, after all, is at the root of all enjoyment. “There are so many human experiences that can be annoying, awkward, or awful,” says Spring. “Retelling the story to others and seeing the humor in it is a great way to cope.”

      Comments about UncommonGoods Ned - Ostrich Portrait:

      I got this for my daughters nursery. It is quirky and bright. The print is exactly what I wanted. I would highly recommend.

      I was also impressed with how well it was packaged. I ordered the framed version and had some apprehension as I've gotten glass items shipped from other companies that were just decimated en-route but this was packaged super well and came in perfect condition.

      Nice prints. They look like the image in the catalog. I wish they weren't matted, however, because now they need custom framing.
