"Something New . . . Something Blue!"

Bluebirds are always a delight to see, with the male bluebird's intense blue color on his upper body and head. It is easy to agree with Thoreau, who referred to the bluebird as a 'bird which caries the sky on his back.'

Bluebirds are cavity nesters. Unfortunately, dead trees and snags are often cleared, destroying their nesting opportunities. To overcome this, many people put up bluebird boxes for the birds to nest in.

Large numbers of these nest boxes constitute 'trails;' a cooperative effort to help these beautiful songbirds.

The cascading branches of blue-violet wisteria blooms in the early spring seemed a natural setting for a painting of some of the wonderful 'springtime blues.'

The Art of Terry Isaac:
Bringing the Spirit of the Wild to Life

From the most delicate songbirds to the wildest canids, Terry Isaac was an artist who painted his wildlife subjects and their habitats with great precision and expertise, skillfully capturing the interplay of light and shadow to bring the spirit of the wild to life in his compelling paintings.

A native Northwesterner with a degree in art education, Isaac believed: "To be a good artist, you need to be a good observer." One of the most enjoyable aspects of his work was the pleasure he got from nature, which always provided him with an endless source of new ideas.

Selected to participate in several important art exhibitions, including the Leigh Yawkey Woodson Art Museum's prestigious "Birds in Art" exhibitions, Isaac was also commissioned to produce 14 waterfowl drawings for the Audubon Bird Handbook, published in 1987.

Terry Allen Isaac passed on July 16, 2019.
