A woman that I work with told me a curious thing at our Christmas dinner party. She told me that her favorite animal is a duck. She doesn’t know why, but she just likes them. Over dinner we swapped duck anatomy, sociology, and behavioral trivia. Needless to say, I did this painting thinking of our conversation. I am quite pleased with how it turned out. I believe this is the first painting of a bird that I have ever done. Anyway, it was fun.
