Birds of the air
Birds have captivated me in art since I was a child. My earliest drawing from as far back as my first years of grade school spotlighted birds as their subject.
There is a freedom in a bird…the ability to fly high above us all. In what seems like endless energy, they flutter, soar, hop and sing. For example, The Northern Cardinal is able to sweep through more notes than are on a piano in just a tenth of a second, and every morning, the world comes to life with the chorus of birds. Every corner of the Earth is alive in music, be it different species, singing different tunes, it all harmonizes into the most glorious chorus of life.
As I have the opportunity to spend more and more time traveling and being in the field capturing these little characters in my mind and heart, it is my blessed privilege and hope to transfer onto canvas what I have witnessed with ear and eye. Just like us, God has created every little bird with its own amazing look and special little character and I hope that it is translated through my brush and brings you the greatest pleasure!
