This collection of plain note cards, in part, celebrates the life of Wayne E. Smyth and his passion for birds of all species from around the world. Wayne traveled the globe with his paintbrush, which enabled him to capture these birds in their most natural form, surrounded by native flora.
With his passing in 2012, it was his desire to share many of these breath-taking paintings in his portfolio with the American Federation of Aviculture (AFA) and its members. Some of these paintings were featured at annual conventions and others were privately commissioned and never seen outside of his gallery. It is our honor to bring these twenty-four images to you, in four separate sets. We will always cherish our friendship with Wayne, and through his generosity we will continue to fight for the advancement of aviculture and a future with birds.
