Plein Air Painting at the Bird Refuge

On Thursday, about 15 artists headed north to the Bear River Migratory Bird Refuge, just west of Brigham City, Utah. It was a crisp Spring day and the marshland still wore the faded grays and browns of winter. 

The visual displays in the visitor's center were extensive. I had no idea that this building housed such a well-thought and beautiful exhibit (complete with bird calls, feathers, footprints and habitat)! I must bring my grandchildren up to see it.

I painted along side of Jim Baluff and Tom Howard (remarkable painters). 

My painting: "Bird Refuge at Bear River, UT," 9" x 12" oil on panel
