International Migratory Bird Day Art Complete

International Migratory Bird Day Art Complete

I got so busy creating the artwork for International Migratory Bird Day that I completely forgot to post about it. To illustrate this year’s chosen theme, Restore Habitats, Restore Birds, I painted five habitats and seven birds. I finished the work a few weeks ago and it has since been turned into a beautiful poster by Karen Steenekamp at Open Design. Posters, t-shirts and materials for hosting your own IMBD celebration will soon be available at Environment for the Americas’ website.

I’m so honored to have been chosen by the folks at EFTA to be the 2015 IMBD Artist and look forward to participating in some IMBD events this spring.
