15x22 watercolor wildlife painting on Kilimanjaro 140 lb cold press paper. I photographed this lovely bird year before last in a cattail marsh on Warrior road in Ruidoso, NM. Blending in with the environment, they frequent roadside brushy areas and dwell within the reeds and cattails. I've entered it in a major bird exhibit on the West Coast coming up. So for now it is not for sale.
