This is a painting I did for the the Reflections on Water Challenge at Daily Paintworks.
Because I haven't painted as much as I would like lately, I found myself struggling and being overly picky, which is  what I would like to get away from.

Ruffled Feathers

Happy New Year!

This little gull was basking in the sun in the Atlantic ocean about a year ago of Hilton Head, S.C. Birds are so appealing, and all the colours of nature are so harmonious. I guess that is why artists have been attracted to it since they depicted animals and their relationship to nature on cave walls millennia ago. I'm no exception.
I love the reflections in the water. I struggled with it for quite a while before I got was I was after.
