Monterey wharf pelican
It's been a busy month since my last post. Travels to Ecuador, 4 failed paintings, finally something finished. I was down to visit an artist friend of mine in Carmel a couple of months ago. I missed him, but I had my camera with me and headed over to the Monterey wharf. It was pelican day or so it seemed. For me pelicans are a real joy to paint. The feathers are a test, their bills are just so colorful and unique. And their eyes seem very friendly. Maybe the fact that they let you get so near helps you feel like they are friends. This white pelican has great colors in its feathers. Oh yea, I also like his/her little cormorant buddy.
Thanks for checking in...and a very MERRY CHRISTMAS to all!!! Mark
