Sleepy Willet 30″ x 30″ acrylic on canvas, $1,600

Willets are usually at the edge of the surf, poking into the wet sand as they follow each wave in and out. This one, when I came on him, was standing above the splash line on one leg asleep. Eventually he noticed me getting closer and closer with my camera and opened his eyes, but still acted sleepy. I painted him with the golden late afternoon sun on his chest and head, and with lavender and gray where his feathers were in shadow.

Vandenberg Falcons 24″x30 acrylic on canvas, $950. When I painted this Peregrine falcon I hadn’t quite realized how intimidated he looked, so I thought it might be good to have something in the picture to intimidate him. What better than the SpaceX Falcon 9 Heavy I had just watched launched from Vandenberg AFB?
