8 x 10 oil on canvas
I saw these ducks at Canyon Lake this past Sunday afternoon. They had just caught sight of people with french fries, which they love, and they also liked my hulled sunflower seeds. I'm a huge fan of ducks; we used to have some that hung out in our back yard in Dallas that overlooked Turtle Creek. We had a treehouse, and not a care in the world. I guess ducks take me back to that time. I remember listening to Herb Alpert and the Tijuana Brass, and my dad would grill burgers while they ambled around our yard. This one is for Edward Burton on our website The Flying Moleskins.
