Mother Swan

Mother Swan
Oil on Linen Board
Nancy Medina Art
Mother Swan is a painting of a lovely lady who lives in New England. She was spotted near a busy roadway along with her babies. She was rather unconcerned about the traffic and the cars that stopped to admire her and her family, and proceeded to stretch and preen and engage in some Swan yoga before moving on to safety. I suppose when you are as beautiful as she, you grow accustomed to the paparazzi.
This is another image taken by my incredibly talented friend Sharon of A New England Life. Her blog is a treasure trove of beautiful images.

Oh Nancy
How absolutely beautiful.
Such fine detail.
What a masterpiece!

Your art is so soft and serene...with just a touch of whimsy. If I ever win the lottery, the first thing I'm going to do is commission you to paint my dear silly George and his sweet sister, Gracie!

Laura said...

So nice, Nancy! Sharon does have the most fantastic photos!

Thank you TweedleyPug, Libby and Laura, I appreciate your kind comments. Isn't Sharon's work amazing? Have you seen her post today, the flowers, the picket fences. Someday I'm gonna move up there and live in her garage. : )

Great painting, Nancy - wonderful brushwork.

You and Sharon look like you could be sisters. This swan looks so soft, you can just feel the softness in her feathers when you look at the painting. Another great one, Nancy! And from a photo no less!
