Down on the River
Here's another shot from Brazos Bend State Park, which has kind of turned into my muse in Houston. I recently discovered that, in addition to the alligators, turtles, armadillos, a various cool birds, they also have river otters! I never would guessed that Texas would have otters anywhere. My kids are going to be pretty psyched about that.
I went all-in (overboard?) on giving this one a painterly look. It was an experiment. Usually I go for the hyperreal, ultra-detailed look, and this one has detail removed and simplified. I think it would look great on canvas.
