My Commissions

Birding friend, Diane, wanted a painting to commemorate the finding of her 225th bird species in Nova Scotia. Happily it was a Lapland longspur, a very colourful and interesting bird to paint. She provided a reference photo of the actual bird, and requested a minimal background. here is the finished painting.
