SWAN REFLECTION, 6X8, OIL, SOLD


I try to go for a walk several times a week and one of my favorite routes takes me pass a pond with a couple of swans.  They have been there for years and suddenly last month, they disappeared!  I really miss seeing them and have an active imagination.  I try to think they have gone on to a bigger and better pond, but I keep seeing images of bobcats.  So, this is a little tribute to my swan buddies, may you swim in peace.

My work has been showcased by Victoria at Paintslinging.  Victoria likes to showcase artists and craftsmen's products on her exciting blog.  I hope you will stop by for a visit, I am sure you will enjoy it.

You have really captured the beauty and grace of this swan. Colors and brushwork are beautiful.

Beautiful swan and its reflection in the pond. Nice tribute. Hopefully they will return.

How lovely, Carol! I like the hints of lavender in the wings... The library I go to has swans in a pond and in the spring there are the sweeeeeetest goslings...

Beautiful painting!! I love the colors in the swan. It feels like I'm at the pond watching it swim peacefully by. No, BOBCATS!! Carol! that can't be. they are simply on a little vacation :)

wow, this is gorgeous Carol. I like the soft mauve and blue on the wing. I'm sure swans down there are the same size as ours up here...and I have seen them when they are angry. I don't think a bobcat has much of a chance against one of these guys. Probably just found bluer ponds and greener pastures :)

I'm sorry to hear your swans are gone! My parent-in-laws have plenty in their backyard if you want to borrow them, the swans like to get very hissy with me whenever I get close. Best admired from a distance!

The painting is very serene, I love the texturing you did with the white.
