Lake Loon & Lilypads
“Loons speak to me of the Canadian wilderness. They do this in voice as well as appearance. Their plumage is both dignified and decorative. More than any other water bird they seem to show off their plumage by standing on their tail and flapping their wings showily. This may not be the scientific case. Perhaps it just seems that way because the flapping display is so spectacular. To do this painting I used many different sources and had a number of false starts before I got it right. Long may loons continue to flap.” – Robert Bateman
