High Rollers - Canvasbacks

High Rollers - Canvasbacks
5" x 7"  acrylic
A pair of canvasbacks ride over a wave in some choppy water.  These ducks have the ability to dive deep for many types of food but it's favorite is wild celery buds.  The sloping forehead distinguishes this duck from other species in the field and is echoed by the slope of the wave.
