White-Crowned Winter 5" x 5" acrylic $245

White-crowned sparrows love open ground next to shrubs and here a male forages through a recent snowfall looking for a meal. The stark contrasting head makes these sparrow easy to identify as they are found throughout the country. They will frequent flat-bottomed feeders and can also be seen in groups of golden-crowned sparrows.

Calm Waters - Pintail 4" x 4" acrylic $130

A graceful drake pintail enjoys the calm water. The serenity of this scene as well as the solitude of the duck inspired this painting. And, pintails are one of my favorite subjects.

Silence 16" x 20" acrylic $2500

It's early autumn and the chill of morning creates a mist over the still lake. A lone Canada goose relaxes in a moment of solitude as the sun begins to lift above the fog. Soon the day will bring it's many events, but for now, all is at peace.
