Paintings of American Flamingos, Greater White Flamingos and Chilean Flamingos.
They are all hand brushed with artist acrylic so are often chunky, sometimes
powder puff smooth. Each picture of these tall, graceful, and beautiful
birds starts as a print made with Camera, then Computer Tools. It
progresses to Gallery Wrap Framing and deep colorful acrylic artist paints
that do not yellow, crack or change color.
The Flamingos will run right off your wall. American or Caribbean Flamingos (also known as Cuban, Rosy, West Indian) have deep red-orange necks and bodies and are found on the West Coast of the United States. These beautiful birds can lock their knees (actually an ankle) and stand on one leg to conserve body heat for more than 4 hours at a time.
For 50 years a flock of Flamingos has been cared for at the San Diego Zoo in California. The flock of over 70 birds is provided lovely accomodations with lots of pigment-carrying-crustacean pellets to keep their deep red-orangee color. To fly, they must run on land to pick up speed and then lift off. As they are wading birds, this run is often done in shallow water.
The Chilean Flamingo found in Eureka California at the Sequoia Zoo varies from deep to light pink. It is slightly smaller than the Caribbean Flamingo and has gray legs. They have exotic beauty when fluffing their feathers.
The Greater Flamingo is white with long pink legs and can be found on the East Coast---Disney World Animal Kingdom in Florida. There are also candy colored totally pink "Lesser Flamingos" found in Africa. The Andean Flamingo, found in the South American Andes have yellow legs! Sadly, none are pictured here.
