Ibises In Flight
# 377

oils        8" x 10"
When the farmers near Gustine irrigate their fields a large flock of Ibses fly in to snack on the bugs and worms. When they take flight they fly around and around the field before they land again. I was fascinated by their shapes in the sky against the clouds.

Birds of a Feather
# 384

oils         28" x 36 "
When the farmers near Gustine irrigate their fields birds of all sorts fly in to snack on the bugs and worms. I saw this scene one day as I was driving through Gustine toward Santa Nella. I sure put on the breaks fast and wipped out my camera! The birds were wonderful !

March of Opposing Forces
# 374

pastels        11" x 14"
Seeing all the new building of houses in the Central Valley, I was sure this empty field was next, then the farmer planted these fruit trees! Farmers put white protectors around the base of new trees to protect the tree from wind and other stresses.

I was so happy to see the new orchard. It looks like two armies facing off. I made the houses look like monopoly box houses on purpose. Today the trees are full grown almond trees and from this angle you can't even see the houses. I guess the orchard won .... so far.
