Art Monday: red knot






Pencil on bristol, Oil on canvas, 2009.
Part of the artwork created for Dan Rhoads' Migrations blog banner last year.

Dan's
announcement here.
My posts about the process
are here.

At Migrations, Dan has been posting with great clarity and with passion (no small feat) about the illegal trapping of birds in Cyprus. Migratory birds of hundreds of species pass through this centrally positioned country and trapped. Make sure to read up on Dan's FAQ about Illegal Ambeloupoulia. Conservationists are often treated with disdain.

Taking a trip? I'd bet on the Cyprus Birding Tours to be fascinating (look at the huge list on their inaugural trip report!), and it would help support the positive side of the Cypriot economy.

The detail on the wings is stunning, theres a real sense of energy about the composition.
