I have looked at the Audubon prints and they aren't nearly as beautiful as this painting in composition. I have the Snowy Egret print and it's nice but almost looks cartoonish compared to this.

Who is the artist for the oil painting over mantel? Beautiful!

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Decorating for the holidays can be time consuming and costly, and their non-recyclable materials often end up in landfills. Take an eco-friendly approach with an evergreen garland. You can find natural garlands at Christmas tree farms and stands — or make your own in a weekend. Gather evergreen trimmings from your yard and wrap long bunches with wire or twine, overlapping them to create long strings of pine, cedar or fir. String them along your mantle or banister.
