The Pelican -- Watercolors of San Carlos, Mexico
I just arrived home after a week in San Carlos, Mexico where vacation highlights included animals of dolphins, sea lions, and a very friendly pelican. I had my watercolors with me on the day of the pelican encounter. My friend, Miriam, captured his astute attention when she moved to sit on the edge of the water. He swooped to her side as if worried for her safety. Watercolor is not one of my best mediums, so I hope I managed to capture the energy and essence of this funny and caring bird.
