Home for Loon
Common loons are the subject of critical research involving mercury. They are important biological indicators of the health of our northern forests and aquatic systems. In this painting, I bring attention to the connection of loons to the water and fish on which they depend. As you look closely at the reflection on the water, you see yellow perch, one of the bird's primary food sources. Loon populations reflect the viability of their environments and these relationships are key. Please join me in celebrating our beloved loons!
