This Art Show is for the Birds! “In Fine Feather” at Fog Forest Gallery

These are the latest bird paintings that I just dropped off at Fog Forest Gallery for their current show “In Fine Feather”. This exhibition honors our little friends …. birds of all feathers. I really enjoyed painting these, as you know I love birds and anything else to do with nature. It is so inspiring to me. I hope you enjoy these!

As usual, I will be participating in the annual RNS Art show and sale. This year I have been invited to put five paintings in.
