Oh how we miss seeing these birds flitting from branch to branch or hopping among the leaves. It won’t be long before they’re back, and Alex Warnick’s wonderful watercolor paintings give us a preview of what the next few months will bring.
On Thursday evening, March 5, 2020, the Nature Artists’ Guild’s program will feature guest artist Alex Warnick and her watercolor paintings and illustrations of birds at the Thornhill Education Center of The Morton Arboretum from 7 until 9 pm. Alex has been drawing and painting birds since she fell in love with them as a little girl. Her expert ability in capturing the intricacies of both the birds and their habitats in her work has earned her awards and partnerships from all over the world, and she is currently working on a field guide to the Birds of Costa Rica. Please visit Alex’s website to enjoy much more of her work as well as some fascinating video and podcast interviews.
Alex’s workshop at the Arboretum, Visiting Artist: Capturing Birds in Watercolor sold out quickly, but her presentation on March 5 is open to the all, free-of-charge. Anyone with an interest in birds, art, or nature is welcome to attend. Visitors should let the gate attendant know they are there for the program to be admitted and directed to Thornhill. There is no charge for parking or admission to the Arboretum for this event.
