Birds Everywhere

BirdsInStudioLast Spring I spent nearly a week in the field photographing migrating birds to use as reference in future paintings.  This effort resulted in all the birds I am now using for the Mat Su Day School Per Cent for Art, to eventually be installed in the entry lobby.  Here are two more in the mid stages of completion.  I hope to get all of them to this level, then spend a week or so finishing details.  The project is coming along very well, I have no further concern about finishing by the deadline and having surgery on my shoulder at the same time.  I’m spending 8 hours a day, 7 days a week painting and am enjoying the total immersion into my work.  My studio is full of these birds, and the yard is full of the spring time migrating birds.  A wonderful time of the year in Alaska!
