Winter Friends


WINTER FRIENDS - 2.5 x 2.5 Watercolor

Isn't this a great little piece? Every winter the ducks and the mute swans are visitors to the southwest coast of British Columbia and when I was over to Victoria for New Years I was very fortunate to see them. It was a sunny day at the lagoon and lots of people were out to see them and feed them so it was easy to get some great pictures. I was so excited at seeing these big birds that I immediate made some plans for a series on the swans/ducks which you will see in my next few posts. I can hardly wait to get on with the next one.
On another note, I had my first Marketing workshop in my studio and it was a great day for all of us. Everyone left feeling inspired and ready with new plans for 2011. It is amazing the synergy that is produced when you spend a day with a focus group. I have one more Marketing workshop planned in February and it is already shaping up to be a good group.

Love the winter friends. Beautifully done Wendy.

Glad you had the opportunity to take many photos. They are so elegant.

Great to hear your workshop went well and good luck for the next one.

Thank you Dors. I was also north of Victoria on Vancouver Island in the Comox Valley. They had the trumpeter swans wintering there. They are even bigger than the mute swan and very beautiful as well. I got some great pictures of them as well. More work for the future!

They are very graceful and I am so glad you got to the Island ( Comox Valley) to take some great pix. BTW I have been to Vancouver and the Vancouver Island. I loved it so much.
