Snack Time - 6x6

Seagulls are hysterical.  I can't decide if they're really smart (like crows!) or really dumb.  On the one hand I've seen them eat plenty of stuff that isn't actually food, but I've also seen them stake out campsites, waiting patiently for the people to leave and then figuring out how to open every bag, even the ones the owners tucked "safely" away from the birds.  Or how about when they repeatedly drop a clam from  high in the air until they get it open?

Ok, maybe they're smart.

  1. I love his stance! He's so sassy!

  2. Sharon, I love this seagull! You MUST paint more birds and animals. Your landscapes are wonderful, the best, but WE'RE missing out on so much fun when you paint like this!

  3. Love this one! Particularly the colors and reflected light.
