Sleepy Little Bird At Oyster Lake

Sleepy Little Bird At Oyster Lake, original 11 by 14 inches acrylic painting on gallery wrap canvas by Jimmie Bartlett

This painting is about a small wading bird that has its eyes closed standing on one leg in the shallows at Oyster Lake outlet to Palacios Bay in the Texas Coastal Bend. It was a bright winter day and that’s probably why the bird was squinting or sleeping and I got close enough to take a picture to paint from. The water was clear and flowing gently out of the lake which added more movement to the painting. I used both brush and palette knife techniques. I enjoyed the work and hope you like the results.

All of my artworks are copy right protected. The copy right water marks on the images will not be on your painting. The painting is signed on front and back and comes ready to hang out of the box. This painting was finished today 4/17/2021.
