I don’t know. I guess I’m just feeling flighty!lol!
Anyway, this is my latest bird portrait. It’s a Sandhill Crane, one of my favorite birds. I love it when I hear them arrive by the hundreds every spring. This portrait is meant to look a bit like stained glass or mosaic tiles in the Art Nouveau style. What do you think?
I just can’t get enough of these amazing birds. They will be taking off by their hundreds and thousands, heading south soon in their raucous yearly migration. It’s quite a sight, but I hate to see it happen, not only because I love seeing them around, but because it means summer is at its end, and fall is here, with winter close on its heels.
The colts are just taking their first tentative flights, so I figure we have a few more weeks with these beauties yet, so I’m greedily drinking up all of the sightings I can. And then it’s only memories until next spring when they arrive en masse again.
The painting, Sandhill Crane Sunset, is 12×24 acrylic on canvas and is available for purchase. I haven’t decided yet if I will be making prints available for this title. If so I will post that info along with the picture info in the gallery.
