Roseate Spoonbill Party, Original Oil Painting


This oil painting is of Roseate Spoonbills feeding in the wetlands of Matagorda, County Texas.  The painting is on an 8x10 inch stretched gallery canvas.

Roseate Spoonbills are seen frequently along our Texas coastline marshes and usually seen together in groups.  This painting was inspired by a photo taken by an artist friend of mine which gave me several photos of the spoonbills to paint.  These beautiful birds are rather skiddish and he had to crawl through the wet and the weeds to get these great photographs.   I hope you like the painting.

Let us pray before we paint,
Jimmie

Note:
Also, if you like my painting, I would appreciate it very much, if you would tell your friends about my blog and website.  As you can see, I do not have outside advertizing on my blog and sites.

Beautiful birds. Love their color, and their name fits perfectly. :) I'm glad to see you painting Texas!
