Ernest C. Simmons and Joe Mercurio

Florida wildlife artist Ernest C. Simmons talks with his fishing buddy, Joe Mercurio, about his obsession for detail and technique in painting Florida birds and outdoor scenery. The Dunedin resident and gallery owner depicts blue herons, anhingas, pelicans and common seabirds like no one else in the world. Some compare his work to that of John James Audubon.
