My Prince Hath Croaked

My Prince Hath Croaked

” My Prince Hath Croaked”   an oil 15″ x 10″ began out as a field study as well at a spot found about a mile from my studio. While I worked, an otter bounced past me and splashed through the water in the foreground and into the culvert behind the figure.  I had a photo shoot with a model soon after beginning the painting and one of the poses struck me as a perfect addition to the scene.
