Oystercatchergirl in natural habitat

These paintings were exhibited in the Oak Bay Library, Victoria, BC, throughout December.

Yours truly at Oystercatcher Central is on a little artistic side-trip. The above paintings are shown individually, below.

It all started when a good friend, who has a garden in Duncan, British Columbia, suggested that I paint something pertinent to her region. Until then, it hadn't occurred to me to depict anything other than ... oystercatchers!

Here are the fruits of that happy request. I hope the results aren't too drab and morose.
