I chose the American Kestrel as my subject because of the beautiful feathers. This predator’s natural coloring, a camouflage in the bird’s habitat, portrays God’s wisdom for each of His creatures; Each perfectly suited to their task.

“I spent my childhood visiting beaches along Padre Island in the Gulf of Mexico. I always thought of the sea gulls as beachcombers along with myself, my sisters and cousins who combed the beaches with me. When painting this scene of waves upon the shore, which are also known as “beachcombers”, I included the sea gull in memory of those wonderful days at the beach.”
