Pet Bat 8x10" Print by Black Apple

$33.00

Emily Martin (The Black Apple) does amazing paintings, and we're excited to have a few of them as prints.

She says about this portrait, "There's a nursery/nonsense rhyme that turns up in several of my old children's books (Mother Goose & elsewhere) which goes:

Bat, bat,
Come under my hat,
And I'll give you a slice of bacon;
And when I bake
I'll give you a cake,
If I am not mistaken.

I'm not sure if she lured him with bacon, or how exactly they got to know each other, but whatever treats she promised him aside: How nice to have a docile little bat to perch on your hand!"

Expertly printed with an 11-ink fade-resitant color process on a smooth, enhanced archival matte paper creating rich blacks and vibrant colors by the Land Gallery in Portland, Oregon.
