Narcissism on Swan Lake

8 x 8 Oil On Gessobord

I can remember my parents warning about swans being mean when we used to feed the ducks.  We would save up our stale bread and feed the ducks everyday at a lake on Long Island.  I was always on the lookout for an attack swan coming at me and would have nightmares about it.  Then I fell in love with the movie "Hans Christian Andersen" with Danny Kaye.  He sang that great song about the ugly duckling turning into a beautiful swan, and now every time I see one that song plays in my head.  They are really quite beautiful and so graceful.
