Happy Graduation Art!

For my brother Art, who graduated from the Citadel in May. This is from some pictures he took hunting in Maryland with my grandfather last fall.
 I quickly learned that while to me the picture was about the sky and water,  to Art, the picture was all about ducks. Enter decoys:

That is where I thought the painting was complete, but there were some changes to make because I worked from a photo, not from life- I hadn't been there. If I had been there, I would have known that the sun was bigger, there were far more decoys, and there were ducks flying in the air. After some procrastination, the painting is complete!
