Trailside Galleries is pleased to present a collection of new studio works. In addition to subjects that are artist and collector favorites, we are also featuring a special North American bird collection.
My four large paintings of North American bird species are inspired by my appreciation and love of the large scale prints the artist James J. Audubon produced of his art of birds. The beauty and delicacy of Fenwick Landsdowne’s paintings and drawings of birds inspired and intrigued me when I was a young art student in art college to one day produce works of art as informative and beautiful as his depictions of birds. These two artists are my standard of excellence in bird painting. I take a bit from both of these artists to develop my style of depicting my subjects. I feel that these paintings are a warm complement to each other when they are displayed together because they are also intended to entertain or inform those who enjoy birds but know little about their habits or lives.
