My Florida Birds
6/3/2019


Solo show of acrylic paintings at the Made in Italy Restaurant, 117 W. Venice Avenue in Venice, Florida. This venue is a satellite gallery of the Venice Art Center, sponsor of the show, which is up through September. There will be an opening reception on June 6 at 4:30 pm.

These are recent paintings of my favorite subject and one that I feel strongly about as I sense their steady decline in numbers, even just in the 30+ years since I've lived in Florida. There are fewer songs in the air and fewer waders in the wetlands, and we are poorer for it. Some of my birds on canvas seem to look up caught in motion as if startled. Maybe asking, "What will you do when we're gone?"
