There also a certain sadness. Oh, not about death in some scenes. That just part of nature. But passings. John James Audubon captured the Passenger Pigeon, a male and female, once abundant and now extinct. Extinct. Gone. Never more. Little did Audubon suspect. And then there his picture, Robin. There still are plenty of robins around the harbinger of Spring but the picture captures something else that has been fading from our eyes today: The elm tree. Once lining streets or filling groves, the elm has been under devastating attack by Dutch elm disease. Little could Audubon suspect the ravages that lay forward for the elm he used as a backdrop.

´╗┐Audubon exhibition in Oshkosh

And to think these impressions are only part of the story of what brought the pictures to the Paine Art Center and Gardens for people in 2016 until Oct. two rooms of the mansion museum are more than two dozen prints from the Audubon array of hundreds.

ALSO: Running concurrently with Birds of America in the Paine upper gallery is by Gary J. Eigenberger, which will be featured Tuesday, Aug. 30, in my column.

There a certain stimulation in viewing Birds of America. The pictures are about birds and their habitat and being in the wild and sensing nature at work and the artistry/craftsmanship it took to pull that off. It a grab at nature perfection.

does not mean prints. The people who created the prints were just as nuts as John James Audubon. The process of copying Audubon originals m e t i c u l o u s l y to create a black and white base onto which to hand paint nature colors m e t i c u l o u s l y is just as nuts.

Take his Bird. Four of the birds are on red alert around a nest of eggs in the crotch of tree limbs. Each of the birds is captured as if by stop action. You get an idea of what they are like in life. The scary part is a rattlesnake mouth wide open, fangs showing coiled around a branch and in combat mode at the edge of the nest. One of the birds is about to get the snake attention with a peck to the eye.

THE PEOPLE: Nathan Paine was the president of the once thriving Paine Lumber Company of Oshkosh. Nathan lived until 1947 (age 77), his wife, Jessie, until 1973 (age 100). They never lived in the mansion but made sure the estate would be a museum. This material may not be published, broadcast, rewritten, or redistributed.

Take Audubon Hawk and Northern Bobwhite, or Virginia Quail. A hawk Women Canada Goose Expedition Parka Spirit Sale Ireland swoops onto a bevy of quail, the hawk wings set as if in a curving dive. The hawk beak is agape, its talons wide open and ready to grab any one of the quail within grasp. Count them 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11. Eleven. Oh, there more quail, young ones, toward the back of the scurrying flock 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17. Seventeen quail, each in a different type of stop action image. All kinds of feather colors explode in their movement tans, browns, black, white and even blue. The picture may well be titled Fright. much is going on in the images. So much went on to make them the field work, the knowledge, the development of the artistic skills, the thought, the joy (?), the sheer stick to itiveness.

THE VENUE: The residence of Nathan and Jessie Kimberly Paine is a showcase unto itself that filled with opportunities of discovery on each visit. Completed (as best possible) in 1932, the structure designed by Bryant Fleming of Ithaca, New York, is of multiple architectural influences. Included are elements of Tudor and Gothic styles. The stonework is primarily limestone, the woodwork primarily oak and walnut. Overall feel: Elegance. Outside is a separate worthy attraction, the gardens. The place survives by being a destination to see, with temporary exhibitions to keep people coming back.

Nuts for birds. Nuts for art.
