Fly Away, 6×6 acrylic on canvas $75 SOLD
Years ago, before my pelican obsession, a friend of mine asked me to do a pelican painting for her husband. She said he loved pelicans in flight. I did the painting, but don’t remember being overly excited about it, and I shudder to think about what it looks like. Because that was before my pelican obsession. Before I’d painted them one hundred times. I’m still trying to understand what I love about them. But her husband was right, there is something magical about one in flight, particularly when I am driving the causeway and one accompanies me for a spell, or, even better, flies right at me and our paths cross.
