Cecelia - SOLD
Cecelia sat by the surf, contemplating yet another herring. Yes, fish was good for the waistline, but her need for something more comforting was ever present. With one more look at the sea, she took to wing, heading for the nearest McDonald's parking lot to barter with the crows for left over french fries.
Yes, another small painting. I’m on a bird track but I do have other paintings in the wings, large pieces that will start to take shape over the next few days.
I do love birds of all kinds but haven’t painted many of them and not a seagull, well herring gull in this case. I find seagulls fascinating and living on the sea there are always hundreds of them around and they always seem to hang out at fast food restaurants. Easy pickings I presume. They are huge birds with bad tempers and a love for a fight with most any other bird that crosses their path. I recall a particular scary encounter with gulls at Paignton Zoo years ago at an outdoor restaurant.
Despite that, I still think they’re beautiful and deserve a large painting of their own soon.
