This post originally aired on April 7, 2009 and is being shared again today in conjunction with Altered Book Lover's Second Look on the Second. The second of the month is when we go through our older posts and share one of our favorites or one that current followers may not have seen. Feel free to join along by posting yours and linking up with Elizabeth at the above link. This painting remains one of my favorites!
The Northern Gannet is a member of the Booby family of plunge/diving birds. They can dive as far down as 130 feet to catch the fish they eat. They are the most common type of Bobby, found from Canada to the Gulf of Mexico.
This is my latest oil painting in which I tried to capture these strong beautiful birds. The paint is still a little wet so I haven't signed it yet, but that is all that is left to do!
Have a great weekend!
