This was a gift for a dear neighbour and friend of mine. I was delighted with the sky, the pastel pinks and blues were satisfying to do. I like the various shapes of the birds in flight.
In early April 2010, I was hoping to get a photo of birds up close but thought it was going to be impossible. Then when I was walking by the railing near the lighthouse, there below me, just a few feet away, were 3 pairs of Fulmars on the ledge. I took a shot of the nearest pair and the painting took off from that. I like the view from above looking down, a view I never did before.
