While on a painting holiday in France a couple of years ago, we came upon this magnificent swan, trolling languidly in the Dordogne River. He’s a “Mute Swan” (Cygnus Olor), and while indigenous to Europe, has been successfully emigrated to North America as well. I painted him today, and then discovered that our own swans are migrating through, stopping over on a big slough on the ranch I grew up on. Welcome home!

This is beautiful Gena!! I love the ripples in the water and the slight arch to his neck! You definitely captured the gracefulness of these wonderful creatures! 🙂
