Still Waters, by Bronle Crosby
Still Waters, by Bronle Crosby, 36" x 26.5", Oil on Canvas, Wildlife Paintings, Framed;
Fisher at the Gates of Dawn. A cloudy morning at the bay, and this tri-colored heron was patience itself, waiting for breakfast. His golden eye blinking was the only movement--no wind, not a ripple on the water, just quiet and the occasional flop of a fish surfacing. Finally, success.
Curated Description: Still Waters is a realistic oil on canvas of a lone pelican and its reflection. The pelican's mirrored reflection is both softer and cooler than the detailed pelican itself, adding to the realism of this piece. The background is a gloomy gray, adding to the sense of calmness of this work.
