"Just Ducky" - 12 x 12 inches - oil on canvas - SOLD


"Just Ducky" - 12 x 12 inches - oil on canvas
Last week I took a still life painting workshop with Sam Vokey.  We were supposed to bring stuff to paint and Sam would help us design our composition.  Most people brought china vases, delicate linens, and beautiful flowers.  I’m just not a roses and teacup kind of person so I had one heck of a time figuring out what to paint.  At the last minute, I spotted my trusty Peterson Field Guide and binoculars.  Knowing that I needed something else, I added a rubber ducky which adds a nice color contrast (and a wee bit of humor).
