This group of house sparrows, scattering away from the leusistic (near albino) sparrow demonstrates cowardice, the definition of white feathered. A scant few seconds was this rarity in view, it quickly bathed and then vanished. The Audubon Society in Boston was aware of this local celebrity in Northampton, Mass. The painting was composed from two sparrows, as the group on the left was arranged from a single bird in various positions of flight. <br />Awards-<br />Artist’s Magazine (2003)-Finalist<br />Allied Artists of America, NYC (2005)-Florence & Ernest Thorne Thompson Memorial Award<br />Birds in Art-Leigh Yawkey Woodson Art Museum, Wausau, WI (2004)-International Juried Exhibition<br />American Artists Professional League, NYC (2009)-Newington Award, Best in Show Painting<br />Salmagundi Non Member Painting Exhibition, NYC (2010)-President’s Award<br />Giclee print of this oil painting available.

The angles of the town line sign, slicing across the paper, form an abstract-like quality to the composition. There is a fine line between commercial and fine art for me, as for years I hand-lettered signs. This is a rare, color approach to the deteriorating, weathered subjects that I’m always drawn to, and one of the few watercolors I’ve painted in recent years. <br />Awards-<br />Academic Artists Assn., Springfield, MA (2008)-Rtistx Award<br />Publication-<br />Splash 11 (North Light Books)-watercolor painting featured (2010)<br /><br />Giclee print of this watercolor painting is available.

I created a series of poet portraits that were used in a video documentary series titled "Poets of New England" for the University of Massachusetts Amherst. Programs were aired on PBS station WGBY in Springfield, Mass. Each painting was used as a back drop for the narrator and also the DVD box art for the cover. <br /><br />Giclee print of this acrylic painting available.

This mailbox was located in mid-state New York, and appeared to be still used. The question is: is the house sparrow moving in or out?<br /><br />Giclee print of this watercolor is available. Contact artist at swilda@acad.umass.edu<br /><br />© steve wilda<br />
