Barrows Goldeneye, oil on panel, 6"x8"

The Barrows Goldeneye is a medium sized diving duck. They like to dive underwater for food which includes aquatic insects, crustaceans and pond vegetation. The simple colors and beautiful abstract pattern of the duck's feathers was the perfect vehicle for using a variety of paint thickness and texture. One of my favorite things to do in painting is to merge a painterly quality with realism.

What an awesome painting! I love the 'painterly/realism'. Just a gorgeous duck.
