Spring is here and the birds are back! Their various songs are music to our ears. This time of year reminds me of one of my favorite painters of traditional art, John James Audubon 1785-1851. He was a French-American ornthologist, naturalist and painter, most noted for his expansive studies documenting all types of American birds. His well detailed illustrations depicted birds in their natural habitats. He identified 25 new species of birds. Audubon's art is well known and loved even today because each piece of art is so authentic and beautiful. I selected just a few. The pure white color and delicate tail feathers of the Great Egret are Stunning!

These little dears are the Carolina Turtle Dove. I love the soft colors and minute details. You can almost hear their gentle cooing.

This is the Little Blue Heron. The blues of this bird are amazing. Such depth!

These are members of the Wood Duck family. The intricate colors of this bird are so beautifully captured by this master illustrator!

All prints are from the Oppenheimer Edition of Audubons, Rare Prints.

Watch for more Audubon prints in upcoming posts of the ASID House -Dining Room that I designed.
