“Picture yourself watching a flock of flamingos settling in for a night’s rest, just as the sun is about to set. On this occasion, I was the only ‘non-flamingo’ in the vicinity. The single member of the flock that was paying any attention to me seemed reluctant to fully commit to closing its eyes. As we watched each other, an idea for a painting began to take shape. I wanted to capture this moment, and allow others the opportunity to enjoy the beauty of this close encounter with me. From a technical perspective, figuring out how to render the various textures and the different types of feathers, including barbs and even barbules, was part of the learning process that intrigued and challenged me about attempting this painting.”
