Singleton Loon

This loon was just off the granite point at Singleton Lake. We started the loon nesting platform program around 2007 and it has been used and successful most years since. They are actually quite large birds. When a loon enters the bay, all of the ducks get "out of Dodge". The painting is actually not as "tight" in the brush work as it might appear. There are some pretty loose strokes and I hope that gives some life and energy to the loon.
