Description Pelicans basking on rocks jutting from the churning seas and soaring over the salty waves is a vision created millions of years ago. In fact, these prehistoric-looking seabirds have changed very little in the last 30-40 million years. In the 1960s and 1970s due to the use of pollutants such as DDT, the Brown Pelican nearly disappeared from North America. After declaring the pelican endangered in 1970, strict pesticide regulations made it possible for the pelicans to make a full comeback. Brown pelicans live year-round in the U.S. Virgin Islands, Puerto Rico, and the southeastern coast. Others migrate to spend winters in central California and summers on the Northwest and mid-Atlantic coasts. Cannon Beach on the Oregon coast becomes home to many pelicans every year, where the seas are teaming with anchovies, herring, shad, and other baitfish.

I.M. Spadecaller, Clearwater Member Since March 2010 Artist Statement Welcome to Spadecaller's Galleries.
About the Artist: Spadecaller (Matt Schwartz) is the pseudonym he uses for his visual art, writing, poetry, and video creations; initially, the name came about by his direct approach on subjects that focus on humanitarian issues that impact our world today. He's known to call a spade a spade.
In the late 1950’s, Spadecaller’s formal training in traditional oil painting techniques commenced. He was eight years old, when he started private painting lessons. Through considerable personal sacrifice, his mother, who has since passed away, nurtured his artistic talents and provided him with many of the tools and circumstances to launch his creative journey. Memories of art exhibitions in New York City that his mother introduced him to continue to motivate his quest for excellence. Spadecaller attended The School of Visual Arts in New York City (1970-71), and during the 70's up until the late 80's, he exhibited acrylic and oils in Montreal and New York. As a realist painter, he strives to capture the beauty of nature and the soul of humankind. Due to the onset of chronic illness in the late nineties and with the advent of image editing software, he turned to creating digital hand painted images, mixed media and photographic art - fusing these into an art form worthy of the same gratification that he had once found in oils.
