Common Loon 4" x 4" acrylic $225
My wife and I saw this loon from a canoe on a lake in Wisconsin earlier ths fall. We were also fortunate enough to hear it's haunting call before it dove out of sight. Although we have common loons in Oregon, they aren't all that common so it was great to see one up close.
My passion, which started early in life, is creating paintings of wild animals in their natural habitat. For me the best part of being a professional artist is spending time in the field studying and observing birds and animals. We live in such an amazing world, I just want to soak in as much as possible and share it with others through my paintings.
