Award-winning wildlife illustrator Walter Alois Weber (1906-1979) was for many years a staff artist and naturalist for the National Geographic Society. He once said that his favorite subject for painting was the animal, bird, or plant with which he had had his most recent experience, and that the average length of time for doing a painting, including research, was about a month. [Thanks to russellfinkgallery.com for this biographical information.]
This illustration would look quite handsome framed. Great gift for wildlife lovers and anyone interested in the native flora and fauna of Florida and the Everglades.
