Endangered means to be threatened with extinction, a coming to an end or dying out. I wanted to create a painting to symbolize this word. This painting is called "On the Cusp" because the Piping Plover is still Endangered but making a comeback. I faded him into the sand to symbolize a fading away but there are some very sharp edges which hold promise to his comeback. A little different for my style but I wanted to make the statement.

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
