"The AFC show in Vancouver this year was a special event. Along with a terrific turnout of artist from around the world, the unveiling of the mural called Silent Skies took place. The mural, over 100 feet long featured, endangered birds...678 species at risk. Many members took time to paint the birds on 8" x 8" panels. It is hoped that the mural will travel to other venues and its stunning visual impact will raise awareness of the plight of many avian species. Above are a few of the species I painted and a shot of the mural with Jeffrey Whiting, artist & founder of AFC Foundation with his best helper, Yasaman Whiting. "
