About this artwork

Artist Javier Ortas depicts black and white shorebirds with long, fine pink legs, giving the birds an elegant gait. Stilt is a common name for several species of this family of birds, explains Javier. I have been an observer of nature since childhood. Although I paint using my imagination, a lot of these different species of birds are in my memory. I grew up watching and distinguishing different animals in the field on weekends and summers. Even today, bird watching is something I truly enjoy.

The painted area is approximately 15.5" x 9.9". Inscribed below is the original title of the artwork, "Cigüeñuelas," along with the artist's signature and the year.
