Oil Spill- Brown Pelican-

Oiled brown pelicans standing ready to be cleaned.

This is part of the new upcoming series of work on the Gulf Oil Disaster that I am doing this fall.

This was from the Oiled Wildlife Rescue Response in Ft. Jackson, LA - June 18, 2010.

Wonderful project and such an amazing piece of work to start it off. The off beat composition and colours are most unusual.

Terrible but splendidly represented. I love it!

I stumbled upon your paintings while searching for a representation of a blue heron.... and i agree, although the oil spill is a terrific tragedy, i love your painting!

It's nice to know fellow watercolor artists are doing what they can to help the cause!

Thank you, Carol!
