The Eyes Have It - March 2020
Exploring on foot or bike, my camera lens eagerly captures the kaleidoscope of imagery in the beckoning bay, wetlands and our own nurturing garden. Evocative statuary in our old cemeteries also draws my eye and heart. This vision translates into cards and canvases available at Gallery 220 (220 Main Street) in Bay St. Louis and my website, www.pchris.net.
Alligators, turtles, Great Blue Herons, Little Blue Herons, Green Herons, Bald Eagles, several species of hawks, woodpeckers, egrets and blackbirds, as well as cormorants, Anhingas, Eastern Kingbirds, Eastern Phoebes, Yellow-rumped Warblers, Blue-grey Gnatcatchers, are just a few I’ve framed.
Our wetlands are also refuge for a long list of seasonal ducks and ibis which pose as if dreamscape paintings in mesmerizing fall and winter light.
Our well-stocked feeders, suet bricks, and mealworm casts entice a wide variety of daily diners and migrants. Our yard alone hosts Downy, Red-headed, and Red-bellied Woodpeckers.
Our coastal living feeds my heart.
