I finally get to post this! There were many notable birds during my trip to the Caribbean and wish I could have painted them all. My schedule did allow time to work sporadically on this bananaquit. This piece is intended to be submitted to the GNSI show in Denver with the theme of birds, plants, and pollinators. This Bananaquit(Coereba flaveola) of the Puerto Rican variety is feeding from the snakeweed(Stachytarpheta jamaicensis) plant found throughout the Caribbean contributing directly in pollination.

Pterosaurs lived during the dinosaurs time but they were not dinosaurs. That title is saved for land reptiles whose legs were positionef below the body. Modern day reptiles have legs that jut to the sides of the body. Pterosaurs had the ability of flight. There is still some debate as to whether actual flying was the norm or primarily gliding. Regardless, in watercolor, I've began a painting of a Pteranodon. It's a toothless pterosaur that was discovered to have a resemblance of short fur covering its body. More to follow...

What I've learned during my time painting this wooded creature is that the Chipmunk is a very deceptive being. From the number of digits not matching to seemingly performing magic tricks by making a mound of food disappear in its mouth and to putting the "welcome mat" of his home elsewhere, I find I can never trust a Chipmunk again. Neither should you.
