Like the movement the birds bring to the composition. Can't be sad looking at this piece.

Ron Morrison said...

Thanks, W.K. Where did Kee go?

Love the movement of the birds. We have 2 sets of bald eagles making nests out in the river on some sort of look out poles and now a pair of huge falcons building a nest on the same types of structure. If I had a car I'd get out there & photo them with my long lens. just awesome.

Ron Morrison said...

Thanks Michele-notice the ladder?

newnorth said...

wow there are a lot of birds in this one. I counted 10 (yeah I can count!)

I like the two cars too ;)

Ron Morrison said...

If you go way back, N.N. you can see a different improved(?) version. This was the pre-study for the pre-study. Someday I'll do the final version and then I'll probably do it again.

newnorth said...

Oh I see them. Feb 25th and 26th. Thanks for telling me. It's cool to see how the colors really change it!

Aaaah, I can smell the salty air, lovely.

There's always something peaceful to me about seeing long-dead boats resting within idyllic beauty.

Ron Morrison said...

Ron Morrison said...

Thanks, Grim.

Hey, had to come to your site to see your art. Your post on Marketplace yesterday didn't have an image and then it vanished completely! What happened?
Love this piece. Great work. Peggy

Todd Bonita said...

Ron Morrison said...

Operator error, I have no idea. I posted something today. Thanks, Peggy.

Ron Morrison said...

Thanks, Todd.

Michelle Smith said...

Lovely. I want to go hang out there. Looks pretty and peaceful.

Cara Dawn Romero said...

Interesting study here but I warned you about feeding those birds....

Looked back at the finished version - wonderful - I like the darker water.

Ron Morrison said...

Thanks, Michelle, I guess thats a benefit of making this silliness up. The scene can be idyllic, sort of. But scenes like this exist in one form or another up an down the coast.

Ron Morrison said...

Seagulls are everywhere including the drive-in restaurant. I like seagulls they are the "everybird" on the coast.

Milford "Uncle Milfy" Acornes said...

Oh lovely, seagulls and rusted things. Why don't you paint something nice, no wonder you didn't get tagged, nobody likes your paintings.

Holt on there, Uncle, nephew is great painter of rusty remnants of glorious American automobiles of bygone era. Got nice room in Gulag for you, Uncle. No more abuses to nephew or you answer to me.
