This is an acrylic painting of a Darter they have beautiful large wings and an elegant long neck. I have always admired these birds. They are quite often seen by the water’s edge drying there wings in the sunshine. The markings formed by there feathers are quite intricate and I find them very apealing. These birds always look very serene to me, hence the title “Serenity”. This bird was so interested in drying it’s wings that I was able to get quite close and take several photographs. It seemed to me to be almost meditating as they are totally unperturbed with my presents.
