Gouache on Illus. Board
12 x 16 in.
|I created this paintingin the mid 70's
when I lived in the swamplands of
Louisiana. This bird is portrayed
hunting for insects on a cypress knee.
As a young person, I spent a lot of time
hunting and fishing deep within the big
swamp, and I became quite familiar with
the many species of unique birds that
inhabited it. The Prothonotary Warblers
were abundant there in the Spring and
Summer seasons...a joy to behold when
brightly illuminated against the dark and
murky swamp background.
