This painting was done in my black sketchbook, a few years ago, on Fripp Island. We went on a boat ride through the marsh on the waterways that surround the island, and wildlife (especially bird life) inundates it. Herons, ibis, pelicans abound, as well as dolphins and sharks can be spotted daily.
Ibis over the Marsh, pastel on black paper, size 10″ x 9 3/4″ (26cm x 25cm). Original and prints available.
I get a lot of my inspiration from flora and fauna (especially tree frogs!), many of which are endangered or their existence threatened by human encroachment, reduced habitats or pollution. Therefore, when you purchase any of my animal paintings, I donate a portion of the sale to The Wildlife Conservation Society. WCS is the world’s preeminent science-based conservation organization, founded in 1895.
