Oh hey there!
I haven’t been updating this page with fun progress photos like I told myself I would, so here it goes…
I’ve been incredibly lucky to be able to work these past few months illustrating ten different sensitive species native to New Mexico for an informational poster promoting conservation. I’ve learned a lot along the way, and each painting has definitely been a challenge (probably the least of which, the Gila trout… but we could all see that coming). I have some minor adjustments and one more bird to finish painting, then it is on to designing the actual poster! I will update the blog when the poster is finished, and hopefully have information on where the paintings themselves can be viewed.
