New Print Giveaway: Galapagos Finches

May 19, 2011




I took one of my recent sets of tiny watercolors and had them made into an 8 x 10 inch giclee. It has four species of Galapagos finches: Geospiza scandens (Cactus Finch), Geospiza magirostris (Large Ground Finch), Certhia olivacea (Warbler Finch), and Camarhynchus parvulus (Small Tree Finch). Galapagos finches, drab they may be, have been oh so important in helping Charles Darwin (and thus the rest of us) understand how animals adapt and evolve. Yay for you, tiny Galapagos Finches! You each get little ornate frames.

Ahem.

Time for a Tiny Aviary Giveaway. Post to the comments section here, and I will enter your name to the contest drawing. Next week (Wednesday perhaps?) I will draw one of your names, and the winner will get a free copy of the new Galapagos Finches print. That day I will also have a 15% off of everything sale in my shops; a little spring cleaning.

Post away!

  4. I am a person who like to win. I am ruthless. I miss the 80s, when my vices were considered virtues.

  29. As the author of "The Private Memoirs And Confessions Of An Ignorant Ornithologist" I probably do not deserve this prize. But a man can dream...
