Majesty in the Marsh

Painting completed in: 2010

Whooping Cranes were close to extinction but thanks to conservation efforts they are on the rebound. Most of the Whooping Crane Population Winters in the Coastal Marshes of Texas near Rockport at the Aransas Wildlife Refuge. Thanks to Chuck Naiser "one of the best Guides on the Texas Coast", I had the priveledge of getting so close to the Whooping Cranes that I could see their Eyelashes!
