Fishin the Flats

Painting completed in: 2014

This is low tide on the Bay side of South Padre Island and I always find the patterns of the Tidal Mud Flats fascinating, especially at Sundown with all the great colors. I envy the sheer flying skill of Pelicans as they glide for hundreds of feet with little effort and a single wing flap will take them another 100 yards while scooping up a few fish.
