I painted this picture with a friend of mine. I was just getting into watercolor. We used frisket, slung water, slung paint, threw in a little salt and just basically had a good time. It ended up being an abstract, but after studying it awhile, I just kept thinking, I have this picture of a beautiful bird coming in for a landing, in the Bahamas, that would be perfect in this painting. This is still one of my favorite paintings.
