"Mr. Wood Duck" Oil Painting

"Mr. Wood Duck"
4x6 Oil in 8x10 wooden black frame
AVAILABLE

I worked on this little painting during our town's Christmas event ---called Sparkle--- which created lots of people coming and going in my studio.

As a result, I had some very interesting conversations about ducks, including their markings, habitats, behaviors and sounds.

This duck was living the good life in a fish hatchery in Spearfish, South Dakota.  We saw him on our recent trip in October.

" Morning Valley Farm" Oil Painting


"Valley Farm"
6x10 Oil
AVAILABLE

I re-worked this painting recently ---  by changing the heavy morning fog which I had originally painted ---into rolling hills and a distant lake. This could be anywhere in our area when the early morning light begins to fill in the valley.
