The Breakfast Club

DMannion, The Breakfast Club, 8x6" oil

      Egrets waiting for breakfast bait snacks early in the morning.  Their big yellow feet look like they're wearing rubber boots.  This fisherman was casting his net for tiny silver bait fish in the Gulf, Venice Beach, Florida last winter.  Painted from a snapshot that I changed a lot, but the birds were actually lined up like that.
      Back in cool, SW Florida after a grueling week in San Antonio, Texas.   Had packed my watercolors but funerals are not the most inspiring time to paint.   And it was well over a crisp, one hundred degrees every day.   So this week is daily painting make-up time.
