These new paintings are watercolor and gouache on aqua boards which are paper-textured clay on masonite, cradled with 2.5 inch wide wood backing. The surface is permanent and textured like thick, hot press watercolor paper but can hang like an unframed canvas. Coated with an acrylic varnish, the surface is tough and durable. These are 24"h x 36"w x 2.5"h.


The first "Common Birds" painting are a series of largish acrylic paintings on canvas. They range from 24" x 24" to 36" x 48." They can certainly hang on their own but were meant to be seen in clusters and groupings, just we observe birds in the wild. They've traveled all over New England for various one-person shows in art galleries, art centers, assisted-living facilities and even in a corporate science center and I was especially pleased to have the Egret's View set travel to the Museum of Wildlife Art in Jackson Hole, WY last year for the Creature Conserve invitational exhibit there.
