Game - oil on canvas - 12"x10"
Private Collection, Denver CO.

Created this piece just before I left for New York this year.
My friends who continue to hunt Pheasant, Duck and Woodcock here each year are keeping up a long family tradition of seasonal hunting in the Burren.
I joined them once, but had'nt the heart to lift the rifle.

When they dropped in these three beautiful birds I had to capture them in a painting first before Boo prepared a traditional feast - Thai Style! The painting is now in the collection of a wonderful family from Denver, Colorado who visited me here at my studio just before I left for my trip to New York.
