Montana's Tropical Paradise by eidolic Montana's Tropical Paradise by eidolic
Visit my facebook page! [link]
Bohemian Waxwings are found throughout most of Western Canada year-round. Every winter however, they migrate south. Some of which make it as far south as Montana and down into the Southern Rockies. They are definitely a rarer sight to see in the US, but if you are around Montana or the northern part of the country this time of year you may catch a glimpse of a flock. They are close relatives to Cedar Waxwings, but Cedar waxwings lack the brick red underside of their tail feathers and yellow wing tips. They diet mostly on berries and since they are such a cold climate bird, I figured I'd name it Montana's Tropical Paradise because it's where they take their winter vacation every year to catch some warmer weather.

I saw a few playing around this past week for the first time ever and it gave me a bit of inspiration to paint them after learning about them in college.

Hope you like it!

21x27" Acrylic painting on canvas
A good 3 days of work, a few reference's for the birds and my imagination for everything else. :)
