Painting, Poetry, and the Heart of Conservation – Part 2

Artists for Conservation

Although my original intention with this second entry (of a two-part series) was to write about the history of wildlife artists who use poetry in their artworks, I was surprised to discover that, (with the exception of Rachel Dillon, a book by Carl Brenders, and an exhibition of children's art with poems sponsored by David Shepherd), there was not much of a history of this coupling.

Painting, Poetry, and the Heart of Conservation

A dear friend recently asked me the question, "Why do you paint animals?" Although we drifted on to other topics before a response could be articulated, I think of this question, often, as I create my artwork.
