1st Place Award 'Tree Top Trio' by Theresa Shelton
1st Place Award ‘Tree Top Trio’ by Theresa Shelton

In August, my oil painting, ‘Tree Top Trio’ won 1st Place at the Central Kentucky Art Guild All Member Show. It was held at Elizabethtown Community & Technical College, Morrison Gallery.
Part of the creative process for me is taking my own reference photos. I was able to snap pics of these brown pelicans while kayaking on the Caloosahatchee River in Ft Myers, FL two winters ago. Trying to hold a camera still on a kayak, with wind and current keeping it in constant motion, is not easy. I had to resort to hanging onto a mangrove branch to keep me in the same spot long enough to capture some decent photos. There were several shots of sky with no birds and some with just bird feet or part of one wing. Thank goodness digital images can be deleted so easily.
