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.
