8 x 8 Oil on Gessobord
This kingfisher sits on top of our sailboat mast everyday looking for her meal. I watch her sit for what seems like hours waiting for her perfect gourmet feast. She only seems to move when my husband or I get the camera ready to shoot, so I never get a good picture. I've painted her here from very blurry, out of focus photos, but I think I've captured her essence. She's not as pretty as the male, but I love her spiky, punky hairdo...Like a blue toned mullet. She has that "Don't mess with me!" look.
