Wigeon Drake in Spring by Kimberly Wurster
Pastel 15 1/2 x 21 1/2
 
There is a field about five minutes from my home that is flooded during the winter and spring. It is very attractive to a wide variety of birds. I really appreciate being able to pop down there even when I don't have much time for I almost always come away with something interesting to explore in a painting. Wigeons are common in the area where I live but I think they are beautiful and I enjoyed portraying this handsome fellow as he gently moved from the bank in front of me. The light in this scene was a particular draw as well, and I decided to stop at this point for I felt I had finally captured the feel of that beautiful day.

Two Bees and a Blossom (Honey Bees and Gravenstein) by Kimberly Wurster
Pastel 9 x 12
 
I created this piece for an upcoming show and thought it would be nice to celebrate sping in the process. Our fruit trees are blooming once again and I never tire of watching and listening to the honey bees as they gow about their business. I painted this a little more loosley than usual as I wanted to capture the lushness of the blossoms and the beautiful highlights without the distraction of too much detail.

Portrait of a Tide Pool by Kimberly Wurster
Pastel 14 1/2 x 16 1/2
 
Portrait of a Tide Pool is the first in a body of work I am creating that is based on the reference I have collected since I've lived on the Oregon coast. My husband and I moved to the Elk River, just north of Port Orford, in 1995 and now I live about one hour north of that area. All the while I have had camera and sketch pad in hand so I am having a terrific time revisiting some of my favorites.

Cedar Waxwing in Highbush Cranberry by Kimberly Wurster
Pastel 14 1/2 x 19 1/2
 
October is loved by all for the gorgeous autumn colors everywhere we look. The American Highbush Cranberry in my yard is just beautiful this time of year and I always watch it closely to see who is stopping by to eat the berries. Cedar Waxwings are frequent visitors and I was so happy to glimpse this beautiful bird before it flew away. This painting has just come off the easel and as soon as it is framed and shipped, it will be available trough Lovetts Gallery.

Poking Along the Shore (Dunlin) by Kimberly Wurster
Watercolor 11 x 14
 
I gathered the reference for this piece during the spring migration at the Bandon Refuge on the Oregon coast. At one point, my dear, late friend Lois Miller and I just put our cameras down as the birds flew by at eye level, so many our own eyes couldn't focus on all of them, let alone our cameras. Poking Along the Shore was accepted into the 2019 inaugural International Juried PRIMA exhibit in Seattle, WA. Please see my Events page for details.

Late Summer (Common Yellowthroats) by Kimberly Wurster
watercolor with pastel 23 1/4 x 16 3/4
 
Late Summer is a painting that developed from some of my favorite subjects; birds, cattails and wetlands. I felt the Common Yellowthroats were a perfect addition to these graceful cattails.

Biography
 
Kimberly Wurster, a native of western Montana, relocated to the Oregon coast in 1995.  Prior to this move Kimberly, with her husband Scott, developed wildlife refuges in Montana, turning unproductive ranch wetlands into prime habitat for waterfowl and trout.  A classical cellist for over forty years, Kimberly shifted her artistic focus in 1995 to painting fine art.  With no formal training, she continuously draws on her experience with the wetlands and a life long love for the natural world.  "My goal is to capture the spirit of my subject, to exemplify the beauty that so inspires me." Kimberly creates her paintings primarily in pastel, watercolor or acrylic, sometimes incorporating ink and other forms of mixed media.  She enjoys painting a variety of subjects including landscapes, but has a particular fondness for birds and wildlife.  Her work has earned numerous awards for excellence in domestic and international competition.
