This painting will be the image for the upcoming 2015 Texas Non-Game Stamp. Proceeds from print and stamp sales benefit wildlife habitat in the state of Texas. Black-necked stilts live in shallow marshes throughout much of the Western United States down through Central America. Their legs are very long enabling them to wade in a bit deeper water as seen in this painting. The background waves show the line where the water actually gets too deep for this pair but they are perfectly comfortable foraging for food in the foreground shallows. 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.
