INDIANAPOLIS ZOO NATURALLY INSPIRED PAINT OUT DAY.
Naturalist Painting of a Rainbow Lorikeet
Naturalist Painting of a Caribbean Flamingo
Each spring, the Zoo invites a group of 15 juried artists
to make art "en plein air" (outdoors) at
Naturally Inspired Paint Out Day.
This past Saturday, I was fortunate enough
to have been among the artist selected for this event.
Here are the two paintings that I did.
The paintings by each artist will be framed by
the Great Frame Up and then put on display in the rotunda
at White River Gardens over the summer,
then will be auctioned off in late August.
The money raised at this auction will go to
support the Zoo's mission of animal conservation.
