2nd Place Oregon Upland Game Bird Stamp Contest!

Spruce Grouse painting by Oregon wildlife artist Shari Erickson
This painting of Franklin's Spruce Grouse was awarded second place today in Oregon's Upland Game Bird Stamp Contest. It is 13 x 18 inches in acrylic and took me a very long time to complete. There was much study involved to become familiar with this sub-spieces and the patterns of the feathers. Oh so close!!!
