Wow this is so beautiful ! v/f

Lil Taylor

Thanks so much, Ana. I'm glad you like this. Sharon and I had a little competition and we decided it was a draw. We're going to share prints of this and "Footloose" (Sharon's painting) so we can hang them together.


Such a wonderful watercolor painting....... love so much the colors and the way you painted the feathers of these splendid birds. F,v. _______ Ana

Lil Taylor

Thank you, Bob....high praise coming from you! Thanks Deborah, I'm still mad about that and before I painted them, I wrote a letter to the Tampa Trib (which was published). Thank you, Chris!

Chris Berry

Lil Taylor replied:

How nice of you. I really appreciate it and I think I'm going to need much more time to look at your site more thoroughly. You have some truly beautiful works so I'll be back!

Lil Taylor

Tyler, coming from one of the finest painters I've ever seen here, that is extremely hard to live up to!! ;) Thank you so much. Sharon and I are like two sides of the same coin and we enjoy that as you can tell. lol

Tyler Robbins

oh my, Lil...this is superb! and I love the 'banter' between you and Sharon...two of the finest artists here at FAA...well done, my friend, everything about this wonderful painting is simply marvelous! f/v

Lil Taylor

Me too. I think it's a fabulous idea and we are in perfect agreement on this!! Thank you, Lenore. :)

Sharon Burger

Lenore, Lil and I challenge each other at times, they will hang side by side in both of our homes, I'm very excited to see them together.

Lenore Senior

Lil~I must be in the mood for sandhill cranes today...or any bird. I see you and Sharon are going at it, but I have to say both are such excellent images. I love the different moods created by each due to colors, posture, etc. They are both fabulous! Vote and fave.

Lil Taylor

Ok, just saw Sharon's Sandhills and they are so beautiful, you won't even believe it. The queen of the birds!!

Lil Taylor

Thank you so much, Devaughn and thanks for visiting!!! I hope to look at your own site tonight (though the day has slipped away from me again) or tomorrow. I do like having an original style so thanks!! :)

Lil Taylor

Thank you so much Xueling and I'm happy it has meaning for you and Chinese tradition. You're very welcome on the feedback because your artwork is always begging for it (it's too good to pass up)/

Xueling Zou

Wow, you did such a wonderful job on this beautiful piece, Lil! Crane is one of the symbol of longevity for Chinese. I love it!! Many thanks for you nice feedback on my work, I really appreciate it!!

Lil Taylor

Viv, my dear. Thank you as always!!! Your comments are dear to my heart.

Birthday present for my Mother. She collects Emmett Kelly figurines and instead of buying some figurines...I went with this! I don't like shopping and searching for the perfect gift...this was the best gift ever! Quality is great and the ordering process was easy. THANK YOU

What a beautiful painting! I gave it to my husband as a gift and he loved it. We find ourselves looking at it often and losing ourselves in it. We enjoy the time period the painting portrays.

Artist's Description

I have felt this urge to paint our wonderful, gentle Sandhill Cranes ever since I read the article about Kentucky giving the green light to hunt the "wary and elusive" Sandhill Crane for a month every year. These beautiful birds are definitely not elusive as you can hear their ear-splitting honks from 25 miles away signifying they're coming but they mate for life and have one, maybe two babies a year. The baby stays with the parents for one or two years. If the male or female of the pair is killed, they will never mate again and the family is doomed. With their slow reproductive rate (like a manatee) and their rarity, it's shameful the state is allowing this on an protected species. They try to claim it's a different bird but since it looks the same and has the same characterustucs, I'm pretty sure the only difference is they are migrating at the time. But, they are tasty, they say. This original watercolor is painted on heavy Arches paper and is unframed.

About Lil Taylor

Lil Taylor

***** As a watercolorist, I take my inspiration from the places I've lived and visited. Many of my paintings were done while living in Florida. Now that I'm living in North Carolina, I can hopefully expand my base to more of the native species of flowers and animals here. Ever since I was a small girl, I have always loved, nature - felt a part of the beauty and order which surrounds us everyday. The intricacies of colors in nature astounded me. I remember a starling that had been shot and I found alive back when I would nurse animals back to health. Starlings are known as ugly birds but as I looked at it in the sunlight, I was amazed with the myriad of colors reflected back at me. Blues, purples, reds all invaded my...
