Buffleheads- Rough Water Bay 12"x 24" oil













This is a work nearing its finishing, an oil representing
the mood of the bay of Green Bay, which borders the west
shores of Wisconsin's Brown and Door County Peninsula,
Lake Michigan on the east shores. Weather fronts, later
season brings these little divers down from Canada in
migration, as well as goldeneyes, bluebills and such.
They strike one as having a comical nature, twisting and
turning, very animated in swimming, heads flipping about
raising up and looking.

As always, clicking on the image brings up a larger view.

The style here has grown from my outdoor plein air
experiences...that is a painterliness born out of necessity
setting up and painting outdoors on location, due to the
nature of light to at any more change. Compare that to
my acrylics done instudio...this one way back in 1984...
The 3rd place finalist entree for the New York Duck
Stamp competition, the American Widgeon or what we
affectionately call, the "baldpate"
