Birding has been a passion of mine since 1979, when I purchased my first bird identification book. Since then, I've kept a list of all the birds I've seen. This year, as I added several new life-list birds from my travels to Costa Rica, I decided to begin a bird series, entitled "Wildland Birds". I took on a personal quest to paint one bird every week in 2019, all from my list. I will only paint birds I have seen in life. What you see here will be a growing collection of this series.
As a life-long hiker and backpacker, I paint only the birds I've seen in person, many of which I've encountered on my adventures. Birds fascinate me with their personalities, survival means, and endless quest for food. Seemingly fragile, they exist in many ecosystems, thus inspiring my homage to their welcome existence and company on this planet.
