These are the same pelicans I used in "Take Flight", but this time I positioned them so that they are flying right into the sun. In this painting, I was interested in capturing, as best I could, the subtle gradations of rainbow colors we see if we glance - just for a second - directly at the sun. Those colors also infuse what we have come to call the "silver lining" of dark clouds. The pelicans are flying out of the violet darkness, and toward the light - as I believe we all are.
Though the original, which was sold, is in pastels, the fine art giclee reproduction is done on the highest quality satin finish canvas, and therefore looks very much like an oil painting, with deep and brilliant color. You have your choice of sizes.
