With this small painting, I was initally attracted to the scene by the soft puff-ball clouds in the sky. Where I live on the East coast of the US, I don't see them that often so was eager to include them in this painting. The scene is near the Fraser river in Canada just south of Vancouver where I have had the pleasure of staying for some time these past few years and still have many happy menories working there. I kept the landscape relatively simple so as to keep most of the interest up in the sky area. Being one of my smaller works, I was able to complete it within a few days. Size is 8" X 10", oil on canvas.
They keep coming back - Yesterday a smaller flock of Waxwings came back to the same park……. The last 7 or 8 days has been a Waxwing extravaganza.
