How lucky I am to live in a small community and enjoy the benefits of observing the "wild life" that shares this space with us.
I live on the river and this morning two deer were crossing the river. I have mixed feelings about the deer population ... they are beautiful in my river but should stay off the roads and out of the garden.
Anyway, this post is about swans, not deer, both of which live on or near my river.
My paintings are based on a snapshot from the paper, the photographer is a friend and he said I could use his image for paintings. He caught the swans at the right angle and I wanted to teach my students about relfelctions.
Dark blue is the key to this being as successful as possible ...
