Winter’s Flight, 15″ x 22″ original watercolor painting by Linda Abblett. This painting portrays three Canadian geese flying up through a snowy evergreen forest near Oregon’s McKenzie River at night, with moon shadows on the snowy background and snowflakes against the night sky. The migrating birds are beautifully rendered, with Abblett’s attention to detail most apparent in their lovely feathered wings and the needles of the trees. This wonderful watercolor painting would make an excellent gift for a bird hunter or a person who just loves Canadian geese. Though the scene was inspired by Linda Abblett’s times in the McKenzie River area, the locale is not identifiable, so it doesn’t limit the enjoyment anyone can have from this peaceful winter scene that is filled with movement in the birds’ winters’ flight. Predominantly white with a dark sky in the background. The original painting and giclee prints in the same size as the original and half the original size are available.
McKenzie River Inspirations paintings arise from artist Linda Abblett’s frequent summer vacations there. Her watercolor paintings of the McKenzie River in Oregon are filled with warm sentiment, summer sun, rowboats and kayaks, fishing scenes, and beautiful views of the river and its covered bridge. The perfect souvenir or memento of that perfect summer in Oregon!
