Goal: To create one piece of art each day for 365 consecutive days

One of the many perks of living at our particular KOA campground is that there is a lovely little pond that is often filled with ducks and geese. I’ve only ever jogged or walked around the thing, but because it was another gorgeous day yesterday I decided I would take my drawing waterside. I sat quietly, watching and listening to the ducks. I was enthralled. Where ice met water, they dove under searching for food. They flapped their wings in smooth take offs and their webbed feet worked as brakes as they came in for splash landings. I need to watch these birds more often.
