I have always been fascinated by ducks, geese, and swans... When I was a kid my mom used to take my brothers and I down to the pond with a loaf of stale bread to feed the ducks... It was our favorite thing ever :) The swans and geese were always a little scarier than the ducks... Bigger, more intimidating. I was commissioned to create a label for Twisted Pine Brewery, for their upcoming release of the "Black Swan Saison"... so I naturally jumped right on it.
I have also published a blog on the creation of this piece, which you can view right here: http://phillewisart.zenfolio.com/blackswanClick here to order prints online
