Sally Blanchard; Carolina Parakeet Serigraph by Charley Harper. Charley was and will always be my favorite wildlife artist. When asked how he compared is work to Audubon's (actually a rather idiotic media question), his reply was, "I don't paint the feathers, I only paint the wings." When we met for a mutual show in St Louis, we realized how much we had in common. My rare hardwood inlay bird sculptures were also stylized to capture the essence of the bird rather than the details.
