Swallow-tailed Kite in Florida
Acrylic on canvas

This painting shows one of my favorite raptors soaring effortlessly over the Florida Keys while eating a dragonfly. During my first visit to Florida, I was struck at the tropical, almost weighted southern sky and how it differed from the northern skies I know so well, especially the pastel pink and turquoise colors that I hadn’t previously seen anywhere else.
