About "Pelican Brief"
My husband enjoys boating on Fisherhaven Lagoon, which is frequented by a large flock of African Great White Pelicans - beautiful graceful birds. I was commissioned to paint a group of pelicans. Being a lover of birds I found and took as many photos of pelicans as I could, and then painted this work. Unfortunately the client was not a hundred percent satisfied - he wanted something a little more traditional, including reeds and landscape.
Renee has been drawing from a very early age. Inspired by nature, her appreciation of the natural world is evident in her realistic depiction of the things she paints - water looks wet, feathers look soft, wood looks weathered. There are no wonderful stories or interpretations regarding her work, she simply paints what appeals to her emotions or senses at a particular time.
