Morning Solitude (8 by 10" oil on canvas) In Private Collection
A Green-winged teal is my favourite duck, well favourite of the dabblers. It sits at a tie with a Ruddy duck, which is a diver. This Green-winged teal was at a tiny little hidden pond at this man's acreage I would deer hunt on and wonder around exploring when it wasn't hunting season. In fact this pond was probably only around 75 yards away from where I saw that enormous White-tailed deer which inspired me to paint "The 82nd Street King".
