It’s often the simple chores associated with a day in the field that I find most compelling and I choose to paint. One particular morning the fog hung heavily in the Yakima Valley, and created the soft ethereal light I love to render. Matt Young, the editor of Ducks Unlimited magazine, seemed alone with his thoughts as he set out a spread of goose decoys.
This painting was created to illustrate the “Closing Time” column in the May/June 2015 issue of Ducks Unlimited magazine. This oil on stretched canvas measures 22 x 18 inches. Framed.
