Re: Pelican Pete

I like very much, Pete's cute.
5x7" is small, good detailing.
Painting fun

Re: Pelican Pete

I love the attitude. Excellent work and particulary on such a small scale. The feathers are great.

Re: Pelican Pete

Thank you everyone for leaving my pelican such great comments. Once in a while I'll paint something that just makes me smile when I look at it and this one is one of those paintings.
