Sunset Pelican

This poised brown pelican shows off his beauty surrounded by an array of colors at sunset.  One of my personal favorites, as I really enjoyed blending the background on this piece.  “Sunset Pelican” was a donation to the POC Catholic church for a maintenance fund raffle.  ~Dawn Ragusin

Roseate Spoonbill Portrait, Calm Waters

 

Roseate Spoonbill Portrait, Calm Waters

My first attempt at a roseate spoonbill…. “Roseate Spoonbill Portrait, Calm Waters” was created specifically for a beautiful young lady in our community courageously battling  cancer, yet always serving and caring for others.  Port O’Connor came together to show love & support for her journey…and I knew I had to create something new and special for this benefit.  ~Dawn Ragusin

In 2010, I painted this “Pelican Portrait” specifically for a benefit for a wonderful Port O’Connor woman battling cancer.  I remember being so pleased with the finished piece that I wanted to keep it for myself, for a second.  I knew that God had wanted me to give my best and that’s what I had to do.

Several years later, the one who bought the piece in the auction brought it to me to hang in my office.  I am grateful that I can now share this blue eyed pelican with you!  Oh, how God works in mysterious ways.  ~Dawn Ragusin
