Dawn... The New River... Your quiet walk is disturbed by the sudden flight of a startled bird. As it rises, you see the powerful rays of the sun illuminating the feathers and silhouetting the body of the delicate creature and suddenly it is gone. But that is what you came for. Your exhilaration is buoyed by the glimpse of natural wonder and teaming life. 

This painting was created to celebrate the preservation of beauty and wildlife in the natural environment which we all can enjoy.
