Just Finished! Pelican Floating on Water called "Oscar Out To Dry".

I am so excited to share with you my latest painting! I have been working in acrylics lately to stretch my creative brain and thinking as well as creating some new works for sale!

Another small work I finished this week....it is is available for sale. I hope you are all doing well and creating wonderful art too!
