Sonoran Desert Critters

I've started a collection of Native Sonoran Desert animal paintings. They are all oil on 8"x8" wooden art panels that I covered with vintage wallpaper taken from a most fantastic 1970's wallcovering sample book.

Couch's Spadefoot

Black-tailed Jackrabbit
(see studies in earlier post)

Desert Tortoise

Barn Owl
(This is not new but fits perfectly with the series theme)
I plan to add the following to the mix: Anna's Hummingbird, Gambel's Quail, Turkey Vulture, Javelina, American Kestrel, Pronghorn, and a Common Raven. Go desert critters!
