About this Painting
The Brown Pelican is a success story of a species once in decline that has rebounded in recent years. Their prehistoric look reminds me of the dinosaurs. I was able to sketch and photograph this one during a recent trip to Texas. He was peacefully floating in the afternoon sun, using his wings to steer, and he didn't mind me watching him at all. In fact, he came closer to get a good look at me!
