The Pelican - Original Painting


A funny old bird is the pelican.
His beak can hold more than his belican.
Food for a week
He can hold in his beak,
But I don’t know how in the helican.

This exclusive black and white original of a pelican was inspired by my memories of growing up in Australia near the Pacific Ocean. He's a big old bird measuring 24 x 48 inches on a 1.5 inch deep gallery-wrapped canvas!  All sealed and ready to fly onto your wall!

Pelicans are regulars on the beach, and I always loved watching their graceful maneuvers as they dived into the water to catch a huge mouthful of fish. I wanted to pin this magnificent bird within a moment in time, to finally catch the catcher.
