Introducing my painting:
"The Montezuma Quail in Ft. Davis, Texas."

This summer  I saw a Montezuma Quail for the first time.  He was walking around with his wife through all the rocks and dry grass near Fort Davis, Texas.  I thought that all of the patterns on his feathers were really beautiful so I decided he would be fun to paint.  There were a lot fires in the area last spring so it is amazing that he even made it.  But life goes on I suppose.

"A  painting lives by companionship, expanding and quickening in the eyes
of the sensitive observer.  It dies by the same token.  It is therefore a
risky & unfeeling act to send it out into the world."
