Of course this colorful proud duck is a male! And of course I had fun painting him.
I have a neighbor who loves ducks and has actually bought many of my paintings. My husband walked into the room as I was working on this duck and exclaimed “I know who’s going to love this painting.” How cool is it to have someone in mind when doing a painting. My neighbor, however, is away for a couple more months…so this wood duck will be able to roam for awhile.
