Curator's Note: I love this mix of modern minimalism and rugged realism seen in the ibis.
An American white ibis is wading over a solid mint background. I painted this after watching the bird relaxing at the edge of the pond next to where I live.
I grew up inspired by the beautiful and strange animals that lurked along the Florida Gulf Coast. There's no time in my life that I haven't been obsessively sketching wildlife and trying to capture their gestures, mannerisms and personalities. I live and work in Redmond, WA -just outside of Seattle.
