ACCEPTING NEW COMMISSIONS – click here to put your name on the list. $480.00 CANADIAN plus GST/HST (Canada) plus shipping (worldwide) 12″ x 12″ x 1.5″ custom-made birch wrap gallery panel. No deposit required. I might start painting in August 2023.

I painted over 60 small birds during the prolonged pandemic of 2020 and 2021 when my concerts disappeared due to lockdowns.

At my son’s suggestion, I moved to a small format ( 8″ x 8″) and offered these at my local farmer’s market in 2021 and online. The next round of commissions will be on slightly larger panels, 12″ x 12″ x 1.5″.

Some very special local collectors bought multiple paintings and often, all paintings were sold to alert online collectors before the day of the market, leading to a very long commissioners’ list that continues for the indefinite future. I put down the paintbrushes when I have concerts or recordings  or other illustration gigs, yet the bird art has become a touchstone and connects me to people the same way that music does. 

Here are samples of previously commissioned birds and here is a link to a brown pelican (Prince) that you can buy right now. And you can find affordable prints of my birds and other art related more to the bassoon on Society 6.

Thanks to everyone who ordered and who plans to order… each interaction brings out a new  bird and that’s frankly amazing.
