Did you know Piping Plovers are precocial which means the young are relatively mature and mobile from the moment of hatching. This painting is called "First Day" because it was the first day of life and as you can see these chicks are still quite vulnerable.

I have always loved art and drawing. I studied at the Academy of Art University in San Francisco and then began working for a publishing house as a typesetter and layout artist
