"From Billions to None - Passenger Pigeon" by Kathy Kleinsteiber

<br> Acrylic on panel in wood frame. Passenger Pigeons were a most prolific bird species, traveling in massive flocks that darkened the skies for hours. They were also tasty. When the railroad and telegraph allowed birds to be tracked and shipped to market efficiently, they were hunted to extinction in no time. The last Passenger Pigeon died in in 1914. The endangered Tricolored Blackbird of California’s Central Valley has several similarities with the Passenger Pigeon. They nest in massive colonies, but since their preferred wetlands have been converted to farm fields, they now nest in farm fields, which are ready to be harvested before the baby birds can leave the nest. I hope to save 1000 birds through payments to farmers to delay harvest. 25% TO SECOND HARVEST; 75% TO CA AUDUBON

"Home Sweet Waterfall - American Dippers" by Kathy Kleinsteiber

<br> Acrylic on panel in wood frame. Once I found out about the American Dipper and its ability to swim, I really wanted to see one. They are often found in rushing streams in the Sierra Nevada, so I went to the mountains&nbsp;on a "wild Dipper chase." I never found a Dipper. Then I discovered that a pair was busy building a nest under a cement waterfall in Los Gatos Creek, only a few miles from where I live. It took a few trips to the creek in search of the Dippers, but I finally found them. I watched them for quite a while. My photographs and memories were the inspiration for this painting. I hope to promote environmental stewardship by donating a portion of all artwork sales to environmental organizations. 30% GOES TO SECOND HARVEST; 30% GOES TO SAN FRANCISCO BAY WILDLIFE SOCIETY

"Lunch on the Beach" by Kathy Kleinsteiber

<br>Width: 20 Height: 16
<br> Acrylic on panel in wood frame. I was eating lunch outdoors at Phil’s Fish Market &amp; Eatery in Moss Landing when a western gull came by to sample the leftovers from a vacated table nearby. While I realize that it is not good for wildlife to eat our rich human food, I so enjoyed watching this bird’s antics that I was inspired to immortalize the scene in paint.

"Pelican Portal - Brown Pelican" by Kathy Kleinsteiber

Kathy Kleinsteiber
<br>Dimensions:
<br>Width: 16 Height: 20
<br> Acrylic on panel in wood frame. I love seeing the brown pelicans flying and diving along the coast. They are common in Santa Cruz and I have seen them occasionally in Alviso and even at a perc pond in south San Jose. Brown pelicans always remind me of the long- extinct pterodactyls from the dinosaur age. Brown pelicans nearly became extinct themselves from the effects of the pesticide DDT in the 1960s and 1970s. They owe their current abundance to the wisdom of pesticide regulations.

"A Mother's Comfort" by Kathy Kleinsteiber

Kathy Kleinsteiber
<br>Dimensions:
<br>Width: 20 Height: 16
<br> Acrylic on panel in wood frame. I was walking in Almaden Quicksilver Park when I noticed a rustling in the tall grass on the left side of the trail. It was a young deer. It seemed a bit concerned to discover&nbsp;that there were humans on the trail.&nbsp;Then from the right side of the trail, just in front of me, out stepped a female adult. The baby ran frantically to its mom, who allowed just a brief moment of comfort before ushering her child on to the safety and cover of the tall grass. I hope to promote environmental stewardship by donating a portion of all artwork sales to environmental organizations. 30% GOES TO SECOND HARVEST; 30% GOES TO SAN FRANCISCO BAY WILDLIFE SOCIETY, A NOT-FOR-PROFIT ORGANIZATION.
