Happy New Year 2023
The Kiss taken on New Year's Day.... Rock Pigeons often are overlooked, probably because they are so common. Yet in the right light they sparkle and what about those red-orange eyes.
More birds in WingedLife Collection
What a surprise... Finally had a little break to catch-up on reading a few magazines. While flipping through Birds&Blooms September Extra issue saw this in the "Garden with a Purpose Bird Tales" section by yours truly. My photo of the Spot-breasted Oriole is the on the right page.
Delighted to offer this unique month-long photography workshop. In addition to once a week in-the-field photo instruction, you'll also receive once a week Zoom classes each week to prepare you for the field class as well as critique your work for the previous outing. If you know me, you know even through this is a very small group class (eight students max) I always offer individualized instruction. Hope you'll join us. Reach out with any questions or to RSVP.
Recently had opportunity to drive to Florida's west coast and visit the Collector's Gallery and Framery which represents my works there. Leah, the owner, feel in love with "Attracting" and asked me to have it printed so she could hang it on the wall. This was my first time seeing it printer and I must admit I fell in love with it myself. Printed on metal the Great Heron looks like satin standing out among the twigs and leaves in its natural environment. The piece measuring 35 x 37 inches is titled "Attracting" because that is exactly what's going on here. In its breeding plumage, this male heron is "strutting" its stuff as in pose showing off it's beautiful self with the intention of attracting a mate. "Attracting" is on display along with some of the other pieces from my collection carried by the gallery on "my wall".
If you're in Venice, FL or nearby, hope you'll take a moment and check him out along with "Early Morning Fog, Milky Way Over the Keys and Louie. Or, contact me for more info on "Attracting," other images from the "WingedLife Collection" or other pieces.

Honored to be among these 57 works by 31 artist. It's quite a stunning show, perhaps one of the most exquisite I've ever seen. Showing through April 29th at Friends of the Anne Kolb Nature Center.

Top: "Rosie" 24"x36" on metal; Bottom: "Pretty in Pink" 16"x24" on metal
Perhaps the most stunning exhibit I've ever hung. Saturday we installed the Annual Juried Exhibit of the National League of American Pen Women-Fort Lauderdale Branch featuring 58 artworks from 31 amazing women artists. I'm feeling tickled pink that both of my pieces were juried into this fine exhibit. On exhibit until end of April at the Anne Kolb Nature Center, 751 Sheridan Street, Hollywood, FL 33019. Let me know if you'd like to visit together.
Many of my earlier works, printed on photograpy paper, matted and framed are on exhibit in my latest solo exhibit "Photographs By Phoenix" at the new Parkland Library, 6620 N University Dr, Parkland, FL. Most of the 25 works on display are limited edition pieces being offered at special prices. The show includes birds, wildlife, lanscapes, waterscapes, sunrise/sunset, Everglades and even a favorite piece taken in Ireland. It also includes my first award-winning photograph, "Tree at Sunset," that happened to win 1st Place and inspired me to embrace my path as a conservation photographer. If you're local, would love to give you a personal tour. If any of these nature wonders speaks to you, please let me know and we can discuss how to get it to you.
