"Duck and Shadow of Duck" Oil, 20" x 16"


This is a still life about ... well, a dead duck. But also, sadness, and the death that is always so close to all of us.

I spent a very long time looking at this duck. It's so beautiful, even in death.

I completely forgot to post this painting here after I painted it, so if you hate paintings of dead birds, click out of here right now. Wait. Too late!

This painting is available at Abend Gallery

Seeing your comments make me want to change the title to "Shadow of Life." Beautiful.
