    This painting is of an adult female Piping Plover and a baby. These small birds are on the Species at Risk List in Canada. The babies are very small and often half of the young ones do not survive. I want to bring awareness for these particular birds, so I have painted a series of these birds.

    The painting is done in acrylics and painted on a pastel board. I use thin layers of paint to bring out the detail of the birds. The ones often borrow under the female to stay warm.

    The colors, light and composition are yummy

    Excellent portrait reflecting the mood of the model

    This painting brings to mind how fragile our environment is. On a recent hike in Lake Tahoe forest, saw how bark beetles have such a great effect on the forest.

    Nice color, composition and mood, with wonderful brushstrokes! Love it!

    Very believable use of color. Painterly brushstrokes and the glow of the sun through the tree keeps the viewer in the painting.
