Cypress Shores, landscape, egret and alligator, knife painting

"Cypress Shores"

Painted this palette knife painting from memory. It is from a fishing trip we went on last week. There were so many birds and alligators that I just had to add some, but the painting was really about the interesting shapes the cypress trees made with the morning sky showing through them.
The palette knife texture is thick and the colors are strong, I also like the way the contrast turned out this time.

Media: acrylic on hardboard
Image size: 5 in X 7 in (12.7 cm X 17.8 cm)
Metallic frame (see below) 

Please email me if you would like me to create something similar in a size you prefer!
