The Ponds, A Bird Sanctuary

Today the Plein Air group met  at a little known area of the Youngstown Mill Creek metro park. In fact  I had to call the park office for permission to paint here. The official was very gracious  & sent us a signed permit to be displayed when we are there. I painted on a larger canvas today & Monday. This is a 5 or 6 hour painting.  Serenading redwing blackbirds, woodpeckers, martins, bluebirds, wrens, & others I was too intent to notice, kept us company.
21" x 29"         oil on canvas          $850
