IBIS BIRDS IN THE FLORIDA SURF original watercolor painting is 8 x10 inches on 'rough' Arches 140 lb paper.

To stand at the edge of the sea, to sense the ebb and the flow of the tides, to feel the breath of a mist moving over a great salt marsh, to watch the flight of shore birds that have swept up and down the surf lines of the continents for untold thousands of years, to see the running of the old eels and the young shad to the sea, is to have knowledge of things that are as nearly eternal as any earthly life can be."

Male Cardinal and Female Cardinal Watercolor Original Paintings

Male Cardinal #1 and Female Cardinal #2 original watercolor paintings could be hung as a pair, or singly, so I decided to post them together. 

"May you come to find comfort in and remember:
Cardinals appear when angels are near.
So go now, sit outside and drink your tea.
Keep a look out for the little red bird —
It is there, your loved one will be."

Sunshine is delicious, rain is refreshing, wind braces us up, snow is exhilarating; there is really no such thing as bad weather, only different kinds of good weather.
