“Pelican Study” is an original 5×7″ acrylic painting on canvas by artist Stephanie T. Gaffney. This beautiful wall art was inspired by the many beautiful pelicans found along the Louisiana bayou. Warm, light greens and yellows highlight this regal pelican as it regards the viewer. These colors also illuminate the background and provide a contrast to the white and black of the creature’s body. The vertical composition elongates the pelican’s stance and provides space for the eye to flow through the painting. Brushstrokes are present throughout the painting and provide beautiful texture and movement to this original work.
The painting is coated with a protective varnish to ensure that the pigment will last a lifetime.
The 5×7″ dimensions allow this piece to be displayed on a wall or as a standalone piece as a beautiful addition to any home decor. If you’re looking for a unique piece of original art that will fill your home with grace and warmth, this is the perfect one for you.
“This painting, along with the whole series of small “warm-up” paintings, has been my creative outlet during this time of quarantine. It is my hope that these little paintings serve as a reminder of the beauty that can always be found in the world, even in days clouded by uncertainty.”
