Bird

Collection

Feathers are most familiar to us as tools of flight.  But many scientist now think that feathers evolved as insulation on dinosaurs who passed them on to their descendants, the birds. Perhaps this helps explain the variety of plumage, from a gull's efficient flight feathers , to the ostrich's fluff, to the peacocks's glorious tail plumes. 

Reptiles and Fish are beautifully painted in this extraordinary Collection.  Conservation efforts are at the forefront of Macnamara's effort.

 In 2018, the Conservation Team at the Field Museum succeeded in the designation of the Yaguas National Park in Peru, with the help of beautiful artwork of the endangered species painted by Peggy Macnamara 

"Paint what you love"

 Wildlife painting is particularly challenging and rewarding.  There is a timeless harmony that exists between land and the animals.  Painting or sketching from a live subject creates immediacy, a bond that is missing when working from a photograph.  

 

Macnamara has painted Zebras, Lions, Cheetahs, Fox, Elephants, Buffalo, Bears, Caribou, Gorilla, Rhinos, Sheep and the list goes on.
