James Buxton and I wanted to submit something collaborative for the silent auction at the 2015 On the Rise event. James is an amazing bird carver, and he chose to carve a Canada Warbler -- one of the listed species-at-risk. This is the second of James' carvings that I've painted. Thanks also to local birder, Nathan Staples, who has spotted Canada Warblers around the Meduxnekeag River. Nathan inspected my painting job for technical accuracy and gave it his approval :) It was a fun challenge to paint this 3D carving with all of its details. The On the Rise event itself was a very enjoyable evening, and we are all excited about the big announcement of Frye Island being acquired as a Nature Preserve!
