I haven't been painting for a couple of years. I am finding old ones that I can share that I have forgotten about until I run into them in the store room. This is an oil pastel that I did on the shoreline of Lake Superior. My wife and I sat out on the rocks and the seagulls would land around us and take naps. Oil pastel is good for some things but doing detail seagulls is not a good medium to use. I remember that I use to get out oil paint white and black and paint my birds in on the oil pastel painting.
This painting was specifically at the Gooseberry Falls park along the north shore and it is not visited as much as they falls are the main attraction. If you follow the river down to the lake shore this is the area you would see, a large rock formation with cliffs that tower over the water.
