Hanging Out "Belted Kingfisher"
Acrylic on canvas
24" x 20"
This painting was first inspired by the weathered wood pilings at Westview Wharf, where cormorants have taken over the ghostly structure. Later I had the pleasure of watching a kingfisher doing a balancing act on one of the chains. The Belted Kingfisher is easy to identify - stocky with a large head, bushy crest and large dark bill. This noisy fishing bird is one of my favorite west coast birds.
