Two Paintings Juried -Toscana Feather Friends Art Exhibit

Posted by on Mar 17, 2017 |

The latest art Show at Toscana Studio and Gallery is Feather Friends and I have two paintings juried into this show.   The show opens on April 1, 2017 with a reception from 5:00 pm to 8:00 pm.   Toscana Studio and Gallery is located at 9040 North Oracle Rd. Oro Valley, AZ.  This show will run until August 5, 2017.

There will be live birds on display at the reception.   During the reception the Writers Bloc members will be reading short stories and poems that feature birds.  Light refreshments and bird music will round out the opening night reception.  Toscana’s art receptions are very well attended and the Feather Friends art reception will be one for the records!

My two paintings juried into this show are from photos I’ve taken of my red hen and the white red tailed hawk in our neighborhood.  The hen painting is titled “Lucy” as that is the name of this sweet red hen.  The hawk painting is titled Leucistic Ballet.  White red tailed hawks are called Leucistics.  One Leucistic hawk is hatched out of every 10,000 red tailed hawks.  These hawks are not albinos.  They have black eyes and some coloring on their feathers.  For more information on this color pattern go here.
