Sandhill Crane performing Jump Rake

Sandhill cranes performing their spring jump rake dance.  Each spring I watch as the sandhill cranes arrive in their spring migration back to North Routt County and their breeding ground. I see them often at Steamboat Lake this time of year, sometimes in pairs and sometimes there are 3 as they bring their young from the previous year back with them and then leave them to find their own way and mates. This watercolor painting was inspired by the photography of local Steamboat photographer Carla Jones and then I used the background of Steamboat Lake in the springtime.

This painting is beautifully framed in a thick gold frame.
