"Where's He Going?" by Carol Thompson

"The lead Caspian tern seems to be saying;  'Where's He Going?'.

Artist comment:  "I have painted ocean scenes with seagulls and pelicans for many years.  I noticed Caspian terns beginning to appear on the Washington and Oregon beaches.  Their unique coloring and 'streamlined design' make them very paintable.  When they 'take off' they flock together in a tight group.  That is why when I saw one going the opposite direction, it was a painting waiting to happen.  This is an oil painting on canvas with the background loosely rendered to depict sky and sand dunes.  I painted the Caspian terns in different wing configurations to create variety to the scene.”
