about the birds


I'm not so much a bird person.


More of a dog, cat, horse person.

But I've become increasingly fascinated with birds as subjects in my art.

For instance, this bluebird, part crow, part blackbird, shows up quite a bit.

And this compelling white bird is the focus of a new painting I'm working on. This is a Red-Footed Booby Bird and is a native of Kauai and Oahu. I hope to see one for real sometime soon. 

I wonder how they got that name...

Are they blessed with a superior bosom...

Do they set traps for unsuspecting tourists...

Perhaps they are prone to blunders...

Of course I'll be sure to inquire if I am ever fortunate enough converse with one.

By the way, they never wear shoes - neither would I if I had feet of such a fabulous hue.
