The Rubber Duck

4"x6" oil on door skin. I could tell you this duck is evil, but it would be a lie. It appears to be a benevolent duck, happy no matter what's going on around it and without ulterior motives. Just a happy rubber duck. Even after grappling with his or her yellows (I don't know what gender it is, it doesn't seem proper to ask), I like this duck. I've mentioned the challenges of painting yellows enough to leave it off here. This guy did seem more interesting being backlit. And no, I don't have a childhood story of my brother beaning me with a water-filled rubber duck, but there was this mean rubber chicken...
