A postcard from Florida

Spring-break in Florida. First stop, Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge. I did a little painting while the family slept in. Right next to the pool was a flock of flamingos. The Greater Flamingo to be precise. This variety, from Africa, is a paler pink than others (there was a nice little sign that told me about them). Good models, they mostly stand still, but they're noisy when disturbed, like when a duck waddles through their midst.

Pale flamingos, oil, 8" x 6"
