THETAWAVES :: Painting Daily
Since my childhood in the Carnegie Museum of Natural History, I have been obsessed with birds. Wildlife in general amazes me, but birds in particular are fascinating. Raptors, the birds of prey, are exciting for their drama and fearlessness. They also made me aware of environmental issues. These beautiful peregrine falcons were so endangered in the 1970's that there were only 120 left in California!
