There are pelicans in Eastern South Dakota! White pelicans with wonderful light pink beaks. Here is the sketch-in of a small painting of the birds.
6×12 in oil pointing on cradled gessoboard
Hunkered Down / 30×40 in / oil painting on canvas
Three gulls hunkering down to stay warm. I’ve had this picture in my head for a long time, and it was time to bring it out!
