The Loon at Blue Mountain Lake

 6x9 - Pastel

One of the most fascinating creatures in the Adirondacks - the loon.  The other morning, about 7 a.m., I took coffee out on the porch and listened to them calling on the lake.  This pastel was done from a photo I took in the kayak last summer.  I was glad I took this photo in high resolution because I wasn't actually close to this loon.  I was able to crop and paint a close up view.  They very rarely let you come that close.

The Adirondack Arts Center has this one for sale.
