Make way for the ducklings! Perfect for a child’s nursery.
Duck Crossing is one of my early images and one of the first where I experimented with a chalkboard background.
I knew from the moment I saw this charming toy that I would feature it in a painting: The wheels are offset so that when it is pulled, the ducks all waddle from side to side. Having the background on a chalkboard allowed me to represent the ducks in a park setting and also provide a “glimpse back to childhood” feel.
I added my favorite blue painter’s tape on the caution sign to provide a spot of trompe l'oeil, a visual illusion where a painted subject looks real. In the original painting, people would look around to the side of the canvas to determine if I had affixed a piece of actual tape.
