These little Sandpipers showed up on our beach on a bleak spring morning, making a quick stop on their way from South America to Canada. Their annual migration is truly amazing: researchers have found that they sometimes fly this route nonstop for six days - that's around 3,000 miles!

They only stayed on our beach for a couple of days, but I spent a lot of time with them, trying to capture both their beauty as individuals and the abstract appearance of them as a group.

My bird images are all traditional photographs, but I love the dreamlike quality of watercolors and have deliberately photographed and developed this image in such a way that it more closely resembles a watercolor painting than a photograph.

The painterly photograph is printed on matte fine art cotton rag paper and is available unframed and framed. All prints have a thin white border for easy framing, and every order is professionally custom printed. Please read below for complete product information.

The prints are available unframed or framed in either classic wood gallery frames or thinner modern metal frames (metal frames are currently only available in the US).

The wood frames come in black, white, brown, and natural, and the metal frames in black, white, warm silver, and rose gold (see images for closeups of the frame colors). All framed images have a white mat. If you would like your print framed without a mat, please select “Framed without mat” in the Mat Options above.

Note that the sizes listed are print sizes; mats and frames will add to the final size. The final outside size of a matted and framed 8”x10” print is 12”x14” (1.5” mat + 1” frame), and an 11”x14” print is 17”x20” (2.5” mat + 1” frame). Unmatted framed prints are 1” larger than the print size.

The sizes listed in the drop down menus are all in inches. Please see the last image above for the sizes in centimeters.

The image is professionally printed, carefully wrapped and boxed, and delivered to you within 10 days. Please allow up to 3 weeks for framed prints.
