Mother's Day card

Happy Mother's Day to my mom! Here's the card I painted. The weird tube that looks like a Chinese finger trap is a bridge in Calgary. Near this bridge were this pair of ducks that my mom told me later were American Wigeons (male and female). And of course we have Dido-cat holding some tulips and wearing a pretty bow!

I'm growing rather fond of ducks. They are easier to spot than birds that hide in trees and are often such lovely colours. Here are the other two duck-themed cards I've painted so far. And a duck-themed illustration, published in the National Post!
