I’ve been sitting on this one for a few months. I made it as a gift to my two wonderful friends who were recently married. I had been wanting to make a landscape on plywood for some time. My friends home state was a great inspiration. Modeled after the Flatirons near Boulder, CO. and a bit of the Red rocks.
I cut up a piece of cold-press board to do some smaller drawings. This one, inspired by a recent bike ride around my town in Ca. central coast.
I got my warblers framed and on my wall. They’ve been wrapped up in plastic in my closet since I finished them. While its a far cry from a public gallery, they’re up in the light, and after all that’s what this blog is all about. And where else can you see 30 species of warblers next to Katy Perry and a Van Gogh print? Damn right.
I took a short (week long) break from the warbler/raptors project to make a tribute of sorts to one of my favorite books. This landscape is inspired by Richard Brautigan’s “In Watermelon Sugar”. A short story that paints a tragedy with the greatest beauty.
I think I’ll draw you some birds this year.
