These whimsical painted birds on paneled wood are a one of a kind piece of are made by John Sperry. Born in 1956, John Sperry is a self-taught artist who first encountered folk art in an Atlanta shop. He felt that the work he saw conveyed such a great amount of feeling through its fun, free-form style that he was inspired to go home and begin painting again for the first time since his childhood. These paintings of his almost immediately attracted an audience and three months after he started painting, he quit his corporate job to pursue painting full-time. These pieces are ready to be hanged in any room, with the help of John Sperry adding a latch made from wire to be mounted onto the wall.
“My paintings are created with oil pastels and acrylics on wood or high quality paper. The paintings on paper are framed and the larger ones are also matted. I paint subjects which speak to me. I mainly use bright colors and incorporate my feelings into the paintings. Humor is evident in many of my works and without it life would be oh, so dull. I do not believe in political correctness but I do not intend to offend anyone. My art has the ability to make people laugh and smile and this may perhaps be the greatest quality of it. Thank you for taking the time to view and enjoy my paintings. If you purchase one, may God bless you for allowing me to be able to continue creating and sharing my art.” -John Sperry
