Grackle! oil 8" x 8"
My intention today was to paint a nice calm peaceful meadow scene...... But, then something came to mind that I was just more in a 'grackle' mood! This bird is one that some people seem to consider only pests and others admire them for their iridescent feathers and canny doings. I just knew when took this photo on the edge of the sunlit river, that I loved the stark,
graphic quality, oh yeah there's that attitude too !
