Atlantic Seaside Still Life

     No plants or animals were harmed in the creation of this still life. It’s an imaginary compilation (using photo reference) of some common flora and fauna found on the North Atlantic seaside in summer. The bell jar displays the skeleton of a Red-winged Blackbird. Plants include flowering Common Milkweed, Spreading Dogbane, and Canada Lilies. Insects featured are found on the plants they favor. The Monarch Butterfly, Red Milkweed Beetle, and Milkweed Tussock Moth all prefer Milkweed. The beautiful Dogbane Leaf Beetle is often found on the Dogbane plant, and the Great Spangled Fritillary Butterfly and Stalk Borer Caterpillar can be found on Canada Lilies. I also added a few Periwinkle shells for a bit of flair. Watercolor.

Forest Birds

I was listening to Maine Public Radio the other morning, and a story about a project Maine Audubon is working on came on. I’m super excited to be a part of their Forest Birds Project. I designed this “infomural” that will be on display soon at the Borestone Mountain Audubon Sanctuary and Maine Discovery Museum. Here’ s a link to the full story
