Many of the birds in my paintings are from reference photos that I've taken of them in my back yard. I enjoy watching the birds that come visit me, posing for me while grabbing a quick bite to eat. Here is a house finch against a blue background that reminds me a snowy day.
Ever since I was young, I've held a special place in my heart for birds and animals, and believe that we have a connection with them. In our modern world, however, this connection often seems quite distant. It's my hope that these paintings remind us of that connection.
