We have made several updates to the site. The basic navigation menu has been updated with pull-down menus to allow easier access to all the gallery options. We have also added better support for screen sizes less than 800 X 600.

But most importantly, we have added new images of Bart's artwork in several galleries. Visit the Mammals category in the Art Gallery, and the Mammals, Birds of Prey, Grouse, Shorebirds, and Waders sections of the Art For Sale gallery to see new additions. Bart also has a new Egret print coming out soon. Go to the "Prints" section for more details on pricing. The Egret print is shown below. Click the thumbnail for larger view.

Major overhaul! And more to come in the near future. We have added several new paintings - both old originals and ones that are for sale. Navigation is different. Each gallery contains more information to help you navigate. This hasn't happened in a few places, but should very soon. There are also plans to revamp some of the old pictures to make image quality better and speed better also. Check it out really soon. Do you want to know what Bart is up to (where his work is being displayed, where he is teaching classes, etc.)? We hope to add some information about Bart and his paintings whereabouts.

The new print "Roseate Spoonbills at Low Tide" (shown below), featured on the front cover of the March/April issue of Birdwatcher's Digest, is now available! Pricing is the same as the other prints - $40. Color remarques are available for $50. Contact Bart directly if you are interested in purchasing a print or remarque.

Click on the thumbnail below for a larger view. Please note that the image quality of the scanned reproduction is very poor in this case. The actual print contains much greater detail and more vibrant colors.

Spoonies Thumb

Bart on the "Spoonbill" painting:

"Roseate Spoonbills are among my favorite birds to watch and paint. They are a strange combination of beautiful colors and unusual looks. They have a face that only a mother could love, but the rest of their appearance makes up for it. On a recent research trip to Florida, with my friend Kalon Baughan, "spoonies" as we call them, were on the top of our list of target species to photograph. In this particular situation we were wading out in the waters at low tide with the spoonbills as they fed around us in the shallow bay, along with snowy egrets, white ibis, and reddish egrets. The spoonbills' gregarious nature provided us with many different group situations and behaviors to paint from. This painting sums up one of the rare quiet moments when the birds took a break from morning feeding to hang out on some driftwood."
