This might sound weird, but I am pretty sure I could devote the rest of my life to painting seagulls and never tire. For one thing, they are fascinating and for another, they are hilarious. I think of them as the con-artists of the bird world.
Funny thing. My whole life I thought the male seagulls were white and the female seagulls were brownish-gray. Guess what? I was wrong! Brownish-gray seagulls are juveniles. They grow into their white feathers when they reach adulthood. Good thing I figured this out before I began illustrating ;)
There’s nothing like a good peck under the mistle toe ;)
