Leigh Yawkey Woodson Art Museum Birds in Art Exhibition 1997
Mute Swan

My intention was to capture the play of light within the feathers of this magnificent male swan. As I approached the small pond where the female was sitting the nest, he swam toward me. As I stepped back he would swim away. Eventually, I maintained a respectful distance and set down the field sketches and notes used to re-create this image. This painting was purchased by the LEIGH YAWKEY WOODSON ART MUSEUM in Wausau, Wisconsin for their permanent collection.
12" x 19" Watermedia on illustration board.
