Benevolent Bird

Spring Hofeldt's tributes to the offbeat characters of the animal kingdom cast this ostrich as your loveably awkward friend or favorite social critic. Against a bright blue backdrop, Otto leans in with his endearing bird grin as if to say "it'll be ok." Each ostrich portrait is printed using acid-free paper and presented under an acid-free mat and Bonanza wood frame. Made in the USA.

New York

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.”
