I love ducks and these ones have always made me smile. I remember the first time I painted a set of these. It was quite a while ago, but it was the first time I knew I could paint ...... I mean paint something and maybe make a living at it ......... or at least sell a few now and then. I've gone on to try more and more, always surprised when I finish. I like that feeling ...... looking at a piece and feeling a sense of accomplishment and total shock. So, everytime these sell there is a little extra zing to the sale for me, knowing that these little guys started it all.
