When I first started painting classification chart/field guide style paintings they were focused on the bird list for Merritt Island National Wildlife Refuge, to learn more about the birds at what is one of my favorite birding spots. At that time I didn’t know that other people would want these paintings on their own walls, and I’m honored to have received such a great response. Thank you!
That brings me to a new project, that is to redo those original guides to include the birds of North America beyond the specifics of Florida. Here is some current work in progress on what will be a pretty lengthy and ongoing project:
Shorebirds, freshly painted:
Ducks, penciled and awaiting paint:
