Subject: Dark eyed Junco and skates Dimensions (inches): 22 x 32 Medium: Acrylic on Masonite Description: The idea for this painting came from an old pair of hockey skates that my neighbor had hanging in his shed. I borrowed them and took them on a walk around the edge of a nearby lake, looking for the right setting. This old wooden bridge that stretched across an inlet seemed perfect. We had a fresh dusting of snow the night before, but this morning was fairly clear with the temperature in the 20's Fahrenheit. Dark eyed Juncos are abundant in this area in winter because of the many different pioneer plants in the open areas that produce seeds, but I didn't decide to use one in this painting until a couple of days later, when one that was evidently at our feeder, flew into our patio door and broke his neck. I decided that if he was going to sacrifice himself to be a study specimen, the least I could do was to immortalize my little friend in my painting. In this picture, the owner of the skates has also gone to find a skating buddy.
