LEAST TERN

Size: 12 X 20
Medium: Oil on Belgian Linen
Date 2006    Private Collection

Artist's Comment"During the breeding season a colony of Least Terns is roped off by the
  Trustees of the Reservations on Cranes Beach just a 15 minute drive from where I live.              
 Weighing just one ounce, these small terns migrate from the northern coast of South America  
to lay their eggs in a slight depression scraped in the sand."
