Amistead sketch and finished painting oil 24 x 36'' SOLD

Just finished this painting

White Ibises Sketch


White Ibises in surf 60 x 75'' SOLD

I have just finished working on this commission. It really is rather large.  With the frame It is 66 x81''
 I had so much fun painting this.  White ibises are lovely. These birds kept bobbing in and out of the waves.
    The downside of doing a series of large commissions is that you miss all  other deadlines.  I wasn't able to submit to SAA or Birds in Art and I am scrambling before the Waterfowl Fest.  However I am going to find it hard to get back to normal. There's no excuse to paint a 7ft painting of swans or an
 8ft wave…… But I am tempted!!

Snowy Patrol (Snowy Egret) 9 x 12 oil SOLD

I needed A mini to take out to the  annual Susan Kathleen Black foundation workshop in Dubois WY. I will be teaching oil painting.  I know it isn't the first Egret I have painted, but I wanted to paint typical Hillier piece.
