Most Talkative

I thoroughly enjoyed painting this guy with his ruffled feathers.  The title came from it being "Senior Superlative" time and our youngest is a high school senior. She was absolutely thrilled and delighted to be voted...wait for it...Class Clown! Yup. Not in a disruptive way, she's just really funny! :o)
I've submitted this guy to this week's Daily Paintworks Challenge, painting summer in winter. And right now, it's 42 degrees in Maine this morning and so I to the ocean!

Love this gull, Brenda. He looks like a right sassy thing, don't you think? I love to watch them at the beach.They really have attitude. Your colors look so pure.

Nice color palette! And I really get the sense of softness and volume on its body.

I ran across your painting on Daily Paintworks so had to come comment.

Congratulations to your daughter!

Brenda this is great! I feel the softness of the feathers and the perky personality. And linking it to your daughter being clever and comedic...very fun!

This is really so very beautifully done, Brenda! I hope you have a great time at the beach. :)
