Sturgeon River Goldeneye (8 by 10" oil on canvas) Collection of Artist
I got the idea to create this painting after I was watching two Common goldeneye drakes trying to impress a hen one morning on the sturgeon river. It is one of the very few places remaining near my home I grew up at where I can go to explore and enjoy nature in peace now. It is still quite far however, about a 15 minute drive in a vehicle. In this painting I tried to capture the two drakes taking a small break from performing their wonderful courtship display to the females all morning.
