Tolliver’s aesthetic sensibility allows his “going into” (painting in or over, embellishing) paintings, photographs, and prints brought to him, and he approaches these paintings with a special flair, adding a bird or two here, a flower there. In Mountains and Pack-a-Mules Trees, and a French Bird and a Peko Bird, he painted over a discarded department store print, simplifying the ground and tree areas and adding two overhead birds.
