Stop talking with your Mouthful-Watercolor
Just can’t seem to get the beach out of my mind, so I took on one more painting last night to cap it off. One day while surf fishing about 5:30 a.m. , a young lady stopped by to talk. She was from the east coast, and was saying that the fishermen would be lined up along the coastline there every morning, and that she found it odd that I was the only fisherman that she had seen that morning (In other words, I was the only fool to get up at 5:00am to catch nothing, not just 1 morning, but three) Hmmm. Anyway, she was a huge fan of pelicans and was saying that they have beautiful colors when you get up close to them. So last night I looked them up on the computer and found this one. With bright orangy red, and yes orangy is a word (at least in my world), grays and golden yellows. I’m not really sure if they are this color all the time, it may be like a wild tom turkey, its head is vibrant red when strutting, because of the blood flow in the head, but when not strutting or after it has been shot, it turns back to a bluish gray. But they are actually beautiful creatures.
This one caught my eye because of the triangular shaped position and the huge tail fin sticking out of its mouth. Along with the bright colors and the funny “I’m not sure I can swallow this” look in its eye, I decided to go ahead and paint it last night. I hope you enjoy!
Oh and please if your are the type the eats with your mouth open or smacks or chews like a cow eating a cud of grass… STOP IT! I’m from a Hicktown, and I know better.
