This is one of my early paintings from
the late 70's, in my then signature style of
a foreground detailed subject against the
soft airbrushed background. The
honeysuckle and poison ivy climb this
maple trunk which is growing on a ridge
in the swamp.  Louisiana has a high
population of woodcock in the winter
months throughout the bottomlands and
even in the Atchafalaya swamp along the
bayou ridges.  The briars are thick on the
ridges, but if you can manage to get
through them, you will be rewarded with
lots of woodcock and rabbits.  The
woodcock hunt is a fun midday diversion
after a good morning in the duck blind,
but watch out for the cottonmouths.
