This is a swan splashing around in the lake. I entitled it "Touchdown". I spend so much time on airplanes and experiencing touchdowns that I had that on my mind when I painted this one for the weekly challenge to paint "splashing". I was actually unsure if swans could fly but guess what? Swans that are seen around marshes, lakes and ponds can actually fly only 60 days after hatching.
This is painted on 6" x 6" board. I really like the way the paint lays on these boards and I really cannot get an adequate picture but the painting is always so much better "in person".
