Kingbird Looking Up - SOLD

A family of Western Kingbirds showed up in our yard around sunset last summer. This painting is done from one of the many photos I took. I just enjoy birds so much — watching them and painting them.

Jackrabbit Dining Out - SOLD

This jackrabbit visited our property last spring taking advantage of the fact that the extra rain we were having gave him a lot of salad options : ). This is a 5 x 7 inch unframed oil painting available in my Etsy shop. Click here to buy it or to see my other available paintings.

Quail With Chicks - SOLD

This has been a good year for Scaled Quail in our area. We had lots of rain this past summer. This bird actually had nine chicks following her. I love the middle chick in the painting. It looks like it's wearing a tutu. You can see the beginnings of their head top feathers even at this stage. I'm saving this painting for a local holiday show that I'll be participating in at the Sangre de Cristo Arts Center in Pueblo, CO. But if you can't live without it, just email me : ). This is an 8 x 8 inch oil painting. 

I've just made my gallery page on the Daily Paintworks site my main website. You can see all my paintings — both sold and available — on this site. Click here to take a look.

Raven Call

I saw this raven almost every day last spring. He definitely claimed his territory around our house. I'd often see him on top of the telephone pole telling the world. Then he started bringing rabbit parts to our bird bath so he could have a drink with dinner. Later that summer I saw four ravens together. I think it was mom and dad and their two kids : ) This framed 6 x 6 oil painting is available at the John Deaux Gallery in Pueblo, CO. Call 719-545-8407 or email me to purchase.
