Ring Neck

30x40 Acrylic on Stretched Canvas with Black Gallery Wrap Border

This painting makes the perfect mate for “Greater Scaup”.

        Known in South Louisiana as the “dogris” or “ring neck”, the Scaup duck is a beautiful example of the simplicity of two drastic color combinations - black and yellow. Both colors are exactly opposite each other on the artist’s color wheel. Actually decorators usually use contrasting colors to create a splash. Certainly God’s design, with the deep black heads of the Scaup duck in contrast with the piercing yellow eye of the Scaup, teaches us a valuable lesson: sometimes opposites do go well together. Some may react to this painting somewhat fearfully because of the stare that appears menacing. The painting is one of the artist’s favorites, despite the somewhat uneasy stare.
 
“One thing I ask of the LORD, this is what I seek:
that I may dwell in the house of the LORD all the days of my life,
to gaze upon the beauty of the LORD.”

Psalm 27:3-5
