Bird Portraits

Digitally enhanced photos from even a simple point-and-shoot camera can appear like paintings. In addition to trying to achieve good photographs, I also enjoy creating transformed images of my favorite birds.

“Watercolors”

The meadow may be snowy (and more snow is on the way), but I am imagining the transformation from Winter to Spring and finally to a hot Summer’s day.

Stained Glass Blue Jay

Jewel-like colors can be found in lively meadow lands as well as quiet cloisters.

A Prague Sun in New England

The “Prague Sun” is the most valuable object in the collection of the Loreto Liturgical Treasures in the Czech Republic. This breathtaking Sun shape is made of a high gilded silver from 1699 and weighs over 12 kg. It is decorated by 6222 diamonds.
On a recent walk by a familiar stream, I was dazzled not by gilded silver or diamonds, but by glistening ice in sunburst patterns around a stone.
