Last summer, while painting and selling on Main Street in Guerneville, California, I had a commison to paint a dragonfly. I wanted some shots of the old bridge in Guerneville so I went down to the river. While taking some shots with a telephoto lens I noticed several ducks feeding off the river bottom. I connected with this Mallard Duck just resurfacing. I really love the composition with strong presence of water and duck and used it as model for one of my spirit paintings.
