Serenity Reflected

 

Algonquin Gull
Gull Study

 

This was painted from a picture taken last fall in Algonquin Park. For the longest time, I sat and watched as this large herring gull and it’s ‘double’ floated serenely across the scene like a living statue. An instant later it unfolded it’s powerful wings and gracefully lifted off into a cloudless sky. Barely any splash. Great moment. Had to paint it. Still makes me smile.

Raven Ravin’

Ravin' Raven

 

This is the third in this series of members of the Corvidae family . They are intelligent birds with definite presence. This guy is telling us something I’m certain. I was drawn to this pose because this character seems to be drawing on all the energy in its body to call out a message. No sweet little songs in the repertoire!

Crow on Snow

Crow on Snow

  This  is crow number two. I liked the graceful turn of the head and the quizzical look. It seems we are the ones being sized up!

Something to Crow About –

DPW_1This post is the first one in the new version of my painting site. The title, Crow on Rocks, is  9×12 inches painted with oil paint on a prepared board. Thanks for your patience. I am finally set up with Daily Paintworks and will be adding smaller pieces for auction and fixed prices to that online gallery. Hope you’ll click the button to just have a look around that site. I’m pleased to see my work in the company of so many great images.
