- Limited edition print of original acrylic on paper painting inspired by John James Audubon's Carolina Parakeets.
Cornuropsis Eritque Arcus (after Audubon)
This time around I turned my exploration of color in the direction of my Audubon themed work. It was a difficult piece but I had been wanting to paint these Parakeets for some time now and my inspration really kept me motivated on this one. The Carolina Parakeet is a tragic story of a once thriving species of North American birds that was eradicated in a short period of time due to various factors related to the discovery of North America by Europeans. The original painting is acrylic on paper.
