A snowy plover and her chick for this rainy Wednesday. If you’re lucky, you can see these tiny puff balls scampering along seashores. They dart around in wet sand, looking for sand crabs and such to gobble up. Sadly, their populations are threatened. . Did you know I donate a portion of my sales to non-profits like WildAid and The Ocean Foundation? I mix in other groups as well, like MISSSEY (which works with victims of human trafficking). . It feels good to support causes that are doing what they can to create positive change in the world. . Anywho. Wood-mounted prints are available at maggiehurley.com. . . . #snowyplover #birdart #birdartist #artforgood #givingback #uniquegift #ethicalgifts #bayareaartist #shopsmall #cutebird #wednesdays #birdoftheday #artoftheday

SOLD! Excited to see this tiny barrel cactus go to a happy home. Did you know the spines on a cactus are actually highly modified leaves? They protect the cactus from predators, provide shade, keep the cactus from getting dried out by air flowing over it, and can help funnel moisture from the air towards the main plant. The body of the cactus carries out photosynthesis while it's spiky armor holds down the fort. . . . . #horticulturalart #horticulture #succulents #cactus #amazingplants #natureinspired #sanjose #sanjoseartist #bayarea #bayareaartist #makestuff #dowhatyoulove #smilingroots

Throwback to my very first art class 1 1/2 years ago! Remember how I used IndieGoGo to crowdfund supplies like easels & brushes?! The support was incredible. So thankful for my initial supporters & besties who came to fill up my classes It's been amazing teaching this year. I appreciate that so many of you have become regulars at my monthly paint nights. I love seeing everyone getting in touch with their creative side, having fun, and progressing with their skills! THANKS for making my job so fun!!
