Miles 65-77 | “Joyful Nature” by Erin Parrot

My show focuses on the species found in the beautiful state of Colorado, but stretches outward encompassing the entire Rocky Mountain region. If you look around a bit, you will probably recognize a few trees and maybe a bird or two that you see daily. I hope these pieces help you to give a name to the flowers

you have been curious about, or maybe even help you figure out which tree the pine cones in your favorite state park belong to.

Painting has always been a connection point for me, a way to connect to the natural world.

Painting different bird species has always been a useful tool in helping me to identify them in nature. This has turned into a full blown passion for naturalist illustration. I pull my inspiration from my time spent in nature and my life long curiosity to understand the connections around me.
