From Beguiled by the Wild: The Art of Charley Harper, page 54 (Flower Valley Press, 1994):
Wow! Over there! Perched on the palmetto! Ever see such complimentary complementary colors? The painted bunting, adult, male, is a bird you must see to believe, but that's not easy. With all that direct male advertising in living color, you might expect him to come on like a billboard, but he shyly shuns the boulevard for the underbrush. Next to him, his mate is a regular plain Jane. Why? So she won't turn a nest bulging with baby buntings into a dead giveaway.

ABOUT EMAILING FOR PRICE:
1. Once an item is "sold out" and only available thru "secondary" or "resale" sources, pricing can vary day by day or hour by hour as resales occur. In such instances, the prices you see on our website may represent the last of those items sold as opposed to today's price. That is why we often tell you to "email" for pricing. And that is why prices often change without notice.
2. We apologize that there are some artists who do not allow on-line listings of their prices.
In either event, when you email for pricing, you must include your phone number and location. We'll get back to you quickly.
If you are having difficulty using our "email for price" or "bid" forms, please call us or switch to another internet browser (Chrome, Edge, Firefox, etc.)
