"Barricades and Ducks" by Sue Graef, Acrylic on Canvas
30" x 40”
Acrylic on Canvas
Original Art Work
Description: There is a small retention pond near where I live which often attracts ducks to the area. One day I walked down to the end of my street and saw these two barricades blocking some large deep holes so nobody would fall in. Then I spotted the ducks and knew this would be the subject of my next painting. This artwork measures 30 x 40 x 1.5 inches, is unframed, has neatly painted edges and is ready to hang on the wall with all the needed hardware attached.
