Common Loon

Common Loon  4" x 4"  acrylic  $225
My wife and I saw this loon from a canoe on a lake in Wisconsin earlier ths fall.  We were also fortunate enough to hear it's haunting call before it dove out of sight.  Although we have common loons in Oregon, they aren't all that common so it was great to see one up close.

Blackwater Bounty

Blackwater Bounty  9" x 12"  acrylic  $1200
A uniquely beautiful wetland because of it's size, location and abundant wildlife, Blackwater National Wildlife Refuge borders the Eastern Shore of Chesapeake Bay. Here, a pair of mallard rest peacefully in the glassy water as the early morning sun spreads it's warmth over the autumn marsh.  Out in the more open water, a group of swans feed on underwater vegetation.  This painting is also for the Waterfowl Festival which is this Thursday - Sunday in Easton, Maryland.

Dropping In - Teal

Dropping In - Teal  9" x 12"  acrylic  $1200
Here is a new painting for the upcoming Waterfowl Festival in Easton, MD.  A group of greenwing teal rocket their way in on a clear, cool fall morning. The positioning of the birds hints at their erratic and speedy flight as the rich colors of dawn illuminate the marsh.
