In progress: "Private Pool - Wood Ducks"

Woodduck painting

I started this oil painting in February and now am finally getting close to finishing. More so than any of the other ducks, Wood Ducks often seek out small hidden waters deep in the woods.

 "Autumn Wood Ducks"
Though not easy, this was a fun painting to work on. Wood Ducks are so spectacular but often, in their
natural settings, they aren't as colorful as their surroundings.

"Green Jays "

On a recent trip to south Texas I saw my first green jays. Here is the painting that resulted from that encounter.

Here's another painting inspired by the same trip. Prints of this painting will be used this year to raise funds for the conservation group Quail Forever.

"Facing the Challenge" Elk

This idea came from the many trips I've taken to western Montana. The scene is right where we usually pitch our wall tent.

Bob White Quail

I have only seen Bobwhite Quail once in Minnesota, but I've seen many down in Texas. That is where the quail reference for this piece came from. I found the old wagon up in Little Falls MN. Quail are my favorite of the upland gamebirds, they have lots of attitude and personality.
