This Chimney Swift painting is now available in a limited edition of 40 prints. 25 percent of every print sold will be donated to support the work of Swift Care Ontario, Ontario Swift Watch and FLAP Canada. The efforts of these groups improve the odds that these birds will survive in our rapidly changing world.
All of the prints have been made locally in Toronto and will be protected during shipping by a rigid cardboard sleeve. Prints measure 8x10 inches and I wrap them in acid free tissue to maintain their pristine condition. For Toronto residents, you can save the cost of shipping by picking up your print at the FLAP Canada office Monday to Friday.
With my experience limited to observing Chimney Swifts in flight, this deceptively simple painting proved most challenging. The painting was completed using watercolour and pencil with a pair of swift specimens and a nest that was loaned to me. Feedback from avian experts ensured that no details were missed.
