Holiday Card Project Stamp by Heidi

Thanks for visiting my page! I'm not as active as an artist as I used to be. I need to kick my behind into gear again about it. But, I still do a lot of photographs, mostly of birds and landscapes. As you can see, waterfowl is one of my favorite subjects, especially ducklings. I consider myself a "duckling specialist". I also love horse art, so you will see a lot of those in my favorites.

My favorite bird is the killdeer, but I also love curlews, especially after reading "Last of the Curlews" by Fred Bodsworth. I love anything that has an Eskimo curlew on it, but the more realistic it is, the better. But, I also love impressionist work, too.

Besides photography, I work almost strictly in colored pencil and acrylic paint. I am open to other mediums.

All my work is "all rights reserved" and are not to be used or copied without permission. Please contact me if you would like to use them on your site, etc. It's OK to use the social media buttons Deviantart provides, though. Please ask before using them any other way.

I could use some points. If you want to send any my way, here's the link. :)

I've recently gone a little crazy with dinosaur stuff, especially bird-like dinosaurs. Since it's pretty much a fact that birds are related to dinosaurs, especially the theropods, I put any theropod and feathered dinosaur favorites in the bird folders. However, there are still modern birds in there, so don't be afraid to look.

Yes, there's one ornithopod in there (the maiasuara is an ornithopod), but it was so cute and bird-like that I thought it belonged with the other dinosaurs.

I didn't know quite what to make of the template, so I mostly went with using complementary and analogous colors and tried to take advantage of objects that I saw in the shapes. I may do another one that is more creative.

Good Morning Baby Squeaker! by Desertdarlene

I entered this into the Mission Trails Photo Contest and got 3rd place for fauna and People's Choice award. This was one of those "been there at the right moment" type of photos. The mother goose was kidnapped as a baby at this lake and returned as an adult. She found a wild male as a mate and made a nest right by the boat docks were everyone saw them. She's very tame, but the dad is mean, which is probably a good thing because she got a little too tame while in captivity and the male made sure that she stayed away from people and kept her out of trouble.
