    Pelican Painting

    Anyone like pelicans. I can take them or leave them but this one caught my eye.


    I dream a lot. I do more painting when I'm not painting. It's in the subconscious.

    The greatest bird is the pelican cause his beak holds as much as his bellycan

    That will be a nice picture. I've pulled fish hooks and unwrapped mono-filament from a couple of these critters. They sure can get themselves in trouble.

    Thank You, it's moving slowly but it moving. Tougher then I figured it would be.

    Who knew pelicans had beards.. you learn something every day

    Starting to take shape nicely , I'm less familiar with these fellows have only seem them from a distance mostly. I do like where the water is going, that has a nice texture to it.

    Dave,
    I can't paint the side of a house well, and am always in awe of those who can take a canvas and create a work of art.... my wife paints sometimes and does a fantastic job and we both belong to two local art groups... she as a painter and me as a wood artist. It's amazing to me what some of the people can do with a canvas and paint..... your artwork is just as or more amazing than some I've seen in our group.... looking forward to seeing the finished project.

    We had the brown pelicans down in Galveston when I was living in Houston area... was fascinating to go down to the beach and watch them... my son is a part time photographer and had some pictures of the brown pelicans that I wanted to post for you, but evidently I don't have them on my computer anymore... his photographs can be seen at www.tellicoimages.com

    My parents taught me to respect my elders, but it's getting harder and harder to find any.
    If you go looking for trouble, it will usually find you.

    Was able to get a full day in Saturday but Sunday woke up sick and became a couch potato.
