i’m jealous of alison kendall swearingen

San Francisco based artist, Alison Kendall Swearingen,┬áis a trained marine biologist and science illustrator… hence these gorgeous paintings of birds on wood panel. I love them all, but my favorite is the final piece above, titled “Swarm”. These paintings would have been enough for this jealous post, but while looking around her portfolio I found two of her older pieces, and I had to show them…

Fantastic, yes? You can definitely see the marine biologist in her coming through!
