Close Up of a Juvenile Roseate Spoonbill Original Oil Painting

Barbara Fallenbaum

Original Oil painting by Barbara Fallenbaum.  They are born naked, helpless and blind.  They are usually mature enough to survive and fly away at about 14 weeks.   At 7-8 weeks they are mature enough to move around the nest and start preparing to learn how to fly.  As they start to grow in their feather, they come in almost white with feathers on the head.  As they mature further they start losing the head feathers and their diet influences their coloration turning it from pale pink to almost magenta at times.  Saw this little one at Ft. Desoto Park early one morning.

  • The painting measures 36" x "36, with frame 44" x 44" x 2.5" deep.
  • The frame is solid wood and custom for this painting.  We finish each one with an undercoated metallic glaze and a nice cream crackle top coat, giving an elegant coastal feel.  Each frame is a unique piece of art by itself!
