How about them feet with the competing beak! It's Day 8 of the 30in30 painting challenge.
I have a watercolor collection of Hawaiian Birds which I began painting some years ago now, specifically to apply images of the paintings to merchandise to be sold in the gift shop of the Hawaiian Wildlife Center on the Big Island of Hawaii. They don't know about this new painting yet and that they will be getting fresh inventory of this little booby soon.
My sister lived in Hawaii for many years and I got to know people through her and the work we did together in her business. Vicariously, some of Hawaii has rubbed off on me. And I am thrilled to do these paintings for their cause.
A portion of the sales proceeds goes to the center.
