Oil - 18 x 24 inches
Before heading home after a day of canoeing, fishing, and hiking around Annie Battle Lake in Glendalough State Park in western Minnesota, I impulsively directed Terry to pull over at Molly Stark Lake, close to the fishing pier. Yes, I'm one of those passengers that frequently blurts out, "Hey, let's stop!" I don't know if Terry or his wheels are worse for the wear, but I find our excursions are always more interesting if everything isn't planned ahead. Anyway, this warbler was around eye-level on the sloped hillside that leads to the dock. Yellow Warblers have sweet calls, and I hear them more often than I can find them, so I consider myself lucky to have gotten a good reference photo for this painting.
