The Charley Harper Collection by Gold Leaf Design Group

        For more than sixty years, Charley Harper captured order and simplified intricate and complex lines, shapes and movement through his painted art. Without the use of computers, he painted Nature's gifts with precision and called it "minimal realism." Mr. Harper said, "...I don't try to put everything in – I try to leave everything out...and so I have never counted the feathers in the wings, for that is not what my pictures are about. I just count the wings."


           With extreme attention to detail and working closely with the Charley Harper Estate, we have captured the energy and color of Mr. Harper's birds as sculptures. Our hand-crafted sculptures are shapely carved and painted wood and metal and are happy to perch on a flat surface or hang on your wall.
