   “This painting was based on some amazing photographs I captured of Roseate Spoonbills up close, in the wild. I love the anatomy and 3/4 turn of the foreground bird. There was a drip of water coming off of the bird's bill; I felt compelled to leave it! Spoonbills like shallow water and the privacy of mangrove swamps, tidal ponds & lagoons; making them a little hard to see. When you do see one, it's always an incredible experience. They have so much character.
My new texture effect using a slight build-up of molding-paste before I paint, gives this piece a strong 3-D effect. The painting ended up with a striking contrast in color. I think this is one of my best. Well, I try to get better with each new painting!”
