Perched on a Page, according to Museum of American Bird Art Director Amy Montague, set the MABA record for the most art objects in a single exhibit: over a dozen framed paintings, 10 framed drawings, over 105 unframed drawings, and a table case filled with sketchbooks opened to favorite drawings. Also, one of my DIY mint-tin watercolor kits, tastefully arranged with a well-used pencil and waterbrush.
It’s a good show for anyone who likes birds and drawings, with enough paintings to add some color relief to the line work.
Opening day was a fine one. Sunday’s reception was well-attended by friends, birders, bird artists, and bird art lovers. Perched on a Page will run until January 14, 2018. I do hope you can make it.

Wow! Such amazing drawings and E.O. Wilson, too! Congrats on what looks to be a great show – wish I could be there to see it!
So very proud of you, Debby!
Thank you, Corienne- that means a lot.
We loved this show, and meeting Debby at the opening was a treat and an honor. Spectacular day!
Kate- so glad you both made it to the opening. Great to meet you!
A celebration for a true artist’s life. Thank you for sharing it with us.
Love this thought. Thank you!
Passionate artist, kind and visionary human….
An inspirational soul.
I was in the Boston area over Thanksgiving. We drove to Canton to see your exhibit. I’ve been a regular viewer of your blog since 2007. I have see scans of your work online, but the scans do not do justice to the pages from your sketchbooks. Beautiful, inspiring work! Thanks so much for observing and sharing.
With a random search for ‘motmot burrows’ I reached one of your posts. Wow, I am sitting here – in Ecuador – and so grateful for the magic of cyberspace, where a few clicks of the cursor places us at the doorways of kindred spirits. I feel a bit as if I’m looking over my own shoulder here, yet I also see a very unique and strong voice, who influences many through her work.
I look forward to enjoying more pages! It will be a pleasure to follow your work!
Beautiful drawings and the specially-built plexiglass case was genius!
Sorry to miss it. Will it travel anywhere else?
