SOLD I have been wanting to paint this for awhile, took the photo a few months back. I decided to do it really loose, mix my paints and then put a stroke down and leave it, I wanted it to look fresh and crisp. I had a good time with it, usually I stress over buildings.

Its coming along slowly, I still have some work to do on it. I had to stop at kind of an annoying spot, very close to being finished. There are three bird's heads coming close together and I wanted to be fresh when I did it so I didn't get mixed up with who's head belonged to which body and be able to make it all show correctly in the finished painting. Not for sale at this time.

Its 8 x 10 and I couldn't finish it all in one day, here is the start of it. I do the background of my paintings first, working from the top down. Next I will paint the fish cleaning station and then the men and finally the pelicans. Then I will probably tweak things a bit. Its not for sale at this time.

Its a miniature, 4 x 6 inches, oil. I believe this may be the same family of cranes I painted awhile back. The area is the same, the photos I worked from were taken awhile apart. $100.
