There is just something about Shelley Smart's photos that draw me, and she so kindly gives me permission, when I ask, to paint those ones that call to me.
This is one of them. An amazing photo, taken at sunset of this lone bird gave me the opportunity to put it on canvas.
Thank you Shelley and I would encourage everyone to visit her blog, A Year at the Beach - her beach, seabirds and waves bring a lovely feeling of tranquility. But please respect her copyright!
