Last night I started a large painting 24"x18" from a photo I took when I went on a workshop on Monhegan Island last June. The painting when I finish, is going to be of Gulls feeding. I and my painting group went to a small lobster place. The type that I love where you sit on picnic benches to eat outside next to the ocean. While I was painting near this place a girl came out and dumped a bunch of shells on a rocky area and in minutes 20 or more gulls appeared to devourer the shells and what was left on them. It was a frenzy. My painting is mild compaired to the actual scene. I will post the finished painting soon. I hope to work on it tonight during the election results.
Sorry for the bad photo with my easel top included.
