June (8 by10" oil on canvas)
The day I painted this painting was probably one of my favorite days of the summer of 2013. It was early June and there was wildlife everywhere and anyone could tell that summertime was finally setting in on the Grasslands. Once I was getting set up to paint this piece I flushed a female Northern Pintail duck off of a nest, a very common duck species on the Prairies. I thought it was very cool and made sure that I set up to create this wonderful little painting as to not disturb her nest when she returned.
