Eurasian Autumn 4" x 4" acrylic $225
A Eurasian wigeon swims on the beautiful reflections of autumn. Eurasian wigeon are becoming more common in the United States and can be found among large flocks of the American version of the species - mostly along the west and east coasts. These birds most likely have migrated from Siberia and Iceland. In my hometown, there are about five that regularly winter on a pond at a local park along with several hundred of their American counterparts. What inspired me to create this painting was the fiery color in this males head and how it is reflected in the water.
