This four-plate etching displays a Roseate Spoonbill, Brown Pelican, White Pelican and a Tricolored Heron. A subtle creative feature of this etching is that the landscape grasses meet from one plate to the next. The viewer is looking through four windows at these wonderful water birds. Three are permanent residents of Florida, while the White Pelican visits in the winter, some of which travel all the way from Canada (a true snowbird). The plates are hand-printed with black ink, then all the colors are hand painted with transparent watercolor making each piece unique!
