American Goldfinch - "Grow into your own plumage, brightly"

American Goldfinch by James AudubonAmerican Goldfinch - Carduelis tristis

Know that the psyche has its own Fame, whether known or not, that Soul can flame like feathers of a bird. Grow into your own plumage, brightly, So that any tree is a marvelous city.” James Applewhite

Yellow and black, dressed in the colors of the Archangel Auriel, the appearance of the American Goldfinch in our summer gardens symbolizes an awakening. Yellow with the sun’s warmth, its color is said to have a profound connection between the natural and spirit worlds. Undeterred by the spiny thistle, the Goldfinch feasts despite the plant’s impenetrability. It is said that after the fall of Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden, the thistle appeared in all its prickliness as a curse from the underworld. Fortunately, the Goldfinch remains defiant in its quest for thistle's sumptuous seeds.

Love my bird print

No problems. It looks great. I had my own frame. Very nice paper.

Great Print

The print is beautiful I was a little concerned about the lack of email confirmations, but overall delivered on time and looks great!

Audubon Ruddy Duck Print

An excellent product for the price in an open-edition decorator print, on high quality paper and vivid colors. I would buy it again!

Bird pictures

I love the four bird pictures I bought! Very high quality

Charting Nature at its best!

High quality prints. Perfect weight of print for framing beautifully. Charting Nature has always delivered prints timely and without any problems. Bought several different nature prints for our lake house and they fit in perfectly. In fact they’re so nice they would also fit in beautifully in a more formal home too.
