Here is a piece I'll be showing at our open studios -- another from the birds of the world series I've been working on. This bird is a brown noddy tern, which I saw in Tahiti. We're having an open studios show opening on Friday, October 14th from 7-11, and the studio will be open on Saturday and Sunday Oct. 15th-16th. Come on by!
