Shore 'Nuff.............Oil painting of shore bird

8x16......"Shore 'Nuff"
This is from a photo that I took from one of our vacations on Dauphin Island in Alabama.  We have been there 4 years in a row and have made plans to go back next year.  This guy definitely does not mind sharing his home with us.  He has been quite friendly.

10x30.....Egret II
These birds we painted from photos in my collection of shorebirds and then I made up the backgrounds so that they would fit together.  I didn't use to have the confidence to just make stuff up like that, but I do it every now and then since I have gotten more miles of painting behind me.
