These are digital paintings of the extinct Passenger Pigeon (Ectopistes Migratorious) based on photos from the Whitman collection and specimens from the Royal Ontario Museum in Toronto.
These studies are for a future painting I am currently working on. Only 150 years ago the Passenger Pigeon was the most numerous bird on earth, numbering in the billions. During their migrations the flocks were so massive that they could block the light of the sun for days at a time. In only 50 years they were gone forever.
In 1914 Martha, the last Passenger pigeon on earth, died in a Cincinnati zoo.
I have prints available for $100 each, plus shipping. They are on 14" x 14" matte photo paper.
