"Feathery Friends" was inspired by a walk on Mustang Island State Park's beaches where I stayed in Betsy, the RV just yesterday. Even though the weather was wet and drizzly, I managed to find some beauty in the beach scenes as I always do. These birds' dark bodies lined up and contrasted with the cresting waves and I knew I had to paint them. The misty colors of the water on a rainy day reflected the mood I was in, but this morning I finished up the birds and the sun came out!
