  1. These are very beautiful paintings David.
    I am an artist too I like to draw and paint birds and animals, landscapes and a variety of mix media
    I am fascinated by your fine work and detail

  2. Awesome work. I am in the field for work a lot and use your Sibley bird guides quite often. What types of brands do you use for your various mediums

    1. Thanks! I use mostly Winsor & Newton gouache on Strathmore Bristol Board. And relatively low-priced synthetic brushes. I haven’t experimented much with materials, this has always worked reliably for me.

    I came across your website looking to identify what I now believe was a Red Shafted Flicker. Beautiful bird that flew right at me to land on the water and feeder. Big flash of red on underside of
    tail and chest, with a pink area around the black eye and covered with white and black feathers. I would like to explore having a picture painted of this bird but I need to know the cost for a 10 X 12 of this bird landing showing the beautiful undercover of its feathers.

    1. Hi Ted,

      Thanks for your interest. For 10 x 12 I would generally ask for slightly more than my standard commission, but it depends on whether I expect the painting to take more time. I’ll get in touch privately to discuss this.

  4. Have you ever considered painting some of the resident Neotropical birds? I would love to see your rendition of a Resplendent Quetzal.

  5. I am interested in a painting of a woodpecker. I saw you have two that are already sold. I live next to two woodpeckers whom I feel very connected with and love to hear their rythmic pecking. I feel they keep me company.
