This is a 12″ x 16″ oil on canvas boards, painted in 1976 and it is called Mallards in the Wild. This post is for Sue of You should check her site out because she does a super job portraying her home country of New Zealand.                    The painting reveals the kind of country view where our family lived for many years. For compositions sake, one is suppose to do odd numbers. The convention doesn’t like twos, but I do. Being a bit of a rebel – here are TWO mallards, male and female.




  1. I love mallards. You can find them all over the valley here, along with a dozen or two other ducks. Ducks, unlike other birds, seem to be so happy just hanging out together. And none of the other birds mind hanging out with any number of ducks. We should all be ducks.
