A 2019 New York Times article on global avian decline inspired Isa to paint a series of endangered bird portraits to raise awareness of vulnerable birds. The Gunnison Sage-Grouse is often confused with the Greater Sage Grouse, but this bird has been accepted as its own species due to its smaller stature and restricted range. It resides only in Western Colorado and Utah. Habitat encroachment has diminished their numbers to around 4,600.
When I was nine a family friend gave me The Nothing Book. I carried it everywhere and this habit became permanent — I am never without my journal. My sketchbooks hold my brain: the galumphing to-do list, jottings, inspiration, places to visit, music to listen to, books to read, movies to see, endless doodles, potential painting titles, dreams and schemes, kids appointments, my calendar, and the rest of the beat.
