Sandhill Cranes by Stanley Sternberg in Louisville, Kentucky
The best part of my job as curator of this online gallery is finding artists that seemingly have gone under the radar. Stanley Sternberg is one of those artists. His Flickr account is chocked full of great pieces that are worth you paging through.
I chose this piece to feature because of how much I love the feathers on this sandhill crane. Wings are fairly intricate things. The way the feathers layer upon one another. The way the gently bend out toward the tips. Great, great piece here to be inspired by.
