This painting was inspired by a young donkey I found living in a grass-filled pasture at a rural apple orchard, and the little flock of ducks my son raised. The backdrop came from my imagination and thoughts of these animals meeting in real life.

I paint in a series of many layers to create my original country landscapes. This piece is on a gallery wrapped canvas and the painting continues around the sides. The work comes ready to hang.
