Oil painting of a Whimbrel shorebird strolling along the beach by Janet Tarjan Erl.

Whimbrel Study

Medium: Oil, Image Size: 8″h x 10″w, 2023.

I saw this Whimbrel at Morro Bay, California. It was feeding among hundreds of shorebirds along the surf and having a feast. The birds were impressive, beautiful, and elegant. There were Long -billed Curlews, Marbled Godwits, and the Western Sandpipers alongside the Whimbrels.

I was very grateful to those birds for generously sharing their magnificence with us, and I hope the painting will inspire others to appreciate their beauty too.

Painting Available – Framed.  This is a real wood frame with a dark brown stain.  Frame outside measurements are: 9″h x 11″w x 3/4″d.
