This is an original watercolor painting not a print or reproduction.
This little card was the first design I painted in my art card series. It is my most popular art card. I find it appropriate and fitting that the art card that started me down the path of painting miniature watercolors is so well-liked by the people who buy my work. The images I took that inspired me to paint this card happened one day while I was walking along the beach path at Lighthouse Park in Point Roberts, Washington. This magical beach trail offers a magnificent view of the Pacific Ocean in all it's glory. I was lucky enough one day to be able capture a series of photographs of these tiny birds. They were fasinating to watch as they danced along the edge of the ocean's surf feeding. To get the images I had to run along the pathway ahead of the birds and lay down among the rocks and without moving patiently wait for them to come within range. I spent several hours that day running ahead, finding a good spot to wait, watch them approach, get some photos, wait for them to move on and repeat. I had to be very discreet, they were very, very shy and I didn't want to scare them.
