FRANCES WOOD - avian artist and author

 

On any given day at Greenbank Farm there’s a good chance you’ll see a variety of birds, with more than 80 species identified on the farm throughout the year. Geese and ducks dominate the pond and are never shy about greeting visitors. Resident blue herons wander the far field and command attention each day as they spread their broad blue wings and take flight. Falcons and eagles are easily spotted, while the hummingbirds entertain everybody as they dive-bomb the flowers. In short, there’s always an abundance of birds on the island and Frances Wood takes note of their ample grace and variety of personalities.

“Feather light, glowing with color, often in constant movement, the essence of birds is hard to pin down, let alone depict in paint and paper,” Wood writes.  “Using watercolor and ink and allowing the white of the paper to be part of the image, I’ve attempted to show the lightness and flightiness of these ethereal creatures.”

Frances Wood’s work shows her love for birds, with her delicate and accurate watercolors. In addition to her paintings, Wood has written “Brushed by Feathers: A Year of Birdwatching in the West,” which she also illustrated. She is also a script writer for NPR’s “BirdNote,” and writes a birding column for the South Whidbey Record.
