There's something about a duck painting. Ive always liked them when Ive
seen them in other people's houses jammed in a row up the side of the
hallway door. Nature portraits. Not a feather out of place. Mallards,
yikes! 1990's flashback of me ordering a "Fluffy Duck" at a bar!??
Ducks are sort of reagal and quaint... but also hilarious with their puffy
chests, short legs and kitchen spatula beaks.
Im not the only one who finds them funny... here's my son at 4 months old absolutely losing it (quacking up??) watching the ducks at the park...
New Zealand's native Whio (or Blue Duck which is actually grey, someone
explain that one to me ) is endangered and he's a bit of a hoon when it
comes to white water rapids.
Mr Whio is my current painting challenge/learning curve.
...so far so good...
Theres 2 days left to go in the 2017 Wild Dunedin Festival. Anzac Day will be a good opportunity to get out and participate in some of the local events.
