Birthday Gull, 6x6 Inches, Oil Painting of Sea Gull

The title of this one is a bit tongue-in-cheek, as it was the FINAL birthday celebration today!   I came back to the studio and found a photo of this seagull grooming itself.  I'd love to paint a seagull from life, but they never stay still long enough!  It was impossible to photograph this painting without the bits of glare on the dark gray feathers, which appear like speckles in the photo.

*March 30 Workshop Full*
I still have openings in the 3-day Workshop, April 25, 26, 27 9-4
At Oceanside Gallery in Hull, MA


  1. Birthday it! So masterfully done! Love the blues in the sky and the look on the gull's face.. ;)

  2. This is beyond beautiful! I think that seagul is my friend.

  3. Une mouette pleine de douceur dans son regard et aussi très observatrice...
    gros bisous

  4. Great painting--you have really captured the essence of him. I love to watch people feeding them at the beach--they are such amazing creatures. Good job!!

  5. One of my favorites to date, Kelley! I love the bright eyes and the softness surrounding this fellow.

  6. I love it too Kelley! You really captured the spirit of the gull.

  7. Kelley, a million happy birthday wishes to you! Best wishes for many more to come! Beautiful painting, as always! I love the word play!
