Pueblo Mountain Pair
Pueblo Mountain Pair 13" x 18" acrylic
This was my last painting of 2012! Pueblo Mountain disappears in an approaching high desert snow storm as a pair of chukars flushes. Although chukar have a grayish appearance, their plumage is very colorful when seen up close. With this painting I tried to incorporate both what you would see in a flushing bird along with a hint of their true colors. Smaller than a pheasant and larger than a quail, chukar love the rocky, arid mountains of the high deserts. My Facebook Page My Website
My passion, which started early in life, is creating paintings of wild animals in their natural habitat. For me the best part of being a professional artist is spending time in the field studying and observing birds and animals. We live in such an amazing world, I just want to soak in as much as possible and share it with others through my paintings.
