Whooping Crane framed original watercolor painting fine art. I have started a new series in an uncharacteristic style for me. I tend towards abstraction but shifted to a more representational approach for this particular project. After reading about the global catastrophic decline in avian species last year, I started to sketch and research birds to increase my connection and knowledge. These are whooping cranes or Grus americana, and fewer than 100 remain in the wild. This started as a side project, but I am toying with bringing these birds to life in products to raise more awareness. 2020
