I continue to be fascinated by what I see when I peer at photographs that Jen has sent me from her work in assisting the American oystercatcher in its life-cycle. There is so much to explain, but it is a busy Sunday for me and I must run out of my lovely home with my Chiboogamoo (aka Tony Martin) and into this beautiful fall day.
My question for you today is this? Why take a real life photograph of a baby American oystercatcher and make an illustration of it? What is the function? What is the result? These images of my art that I am posting today have not yet reached the "height" of my imagination that I intend.
However, I am sharing my process of this series with you. It involves some risk taking of letting you into the various "awkward" stages as I go.

I am so in love with Jen's images that I have difficulty sharing them with a wider public. But it is a privilege to have access to these images of the American oystercatcher's life. These are precious images of a precious animal. Will it continue to live in our world? In part, it is up to all of us and the actions we are willing to take to make the world thrive.That's Coffee with Hallelujah! SOUL BLOG with me. Tell me how much you too love Jen's photos!
