I dont recognise these as loons - they look more like morehens to me but its still a really nice bit of artwork

The colors are so vibrant!  Great style inspiration.

I saw this photo and immediately said, "Norval!" He is fun to emulate. Lovely rendition, Sharon.

Love the vibrant palette-at first I thought there were only three, but then saw the little one tucked away! Norval's art seems to touch something special at a very primal level as does this one!

Thank you so much for your comments Ev and Jean. I agree that  Norval and other painters like him are so simple but convey a pure link to nature and my heart. Jean, you are absolutely right about there being 4 loons. I over looked the baby and will now retitle this Three Loons and a Baby. LOL xx

LOL Sharon! It's more like three and a half!!  Getting ready for the hurricane so signing off for now!
