"A Rare Moment" by Debra Tritt-Kreiger

8.5"x11 watercolor on Arches Paper

As I have begun painting more paintings of all the different birds I have encountered and photographed, I found that this was indeed a rare find. I encountered this bird on a beach in New Jersey. In my research I believe it is a Bristle-Thighed Curlew which is in the sandpiper family and their numbers are decreasing due to climate change and the loss of habitat. Really happy to bring this bird into my painting world and help people realize we all share one planet and we need to take care of it.

This is one of my shell paintings that started out with inspiration from a box of shells. Just looking for something different to paint. The sand was the challenge and it has turned into a signature feature in many of my paintings these days. This painting has found its' forever home thanks to Lyn at Art and Soul Gallery on the 2nd floor of the West shore farmers market in Lemoyne, PA. Special thanks to the new owner.
