    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.
