Snipe Hunt Mixed Media Painting
Snipes are secretive wetland birds with beautiful markings. This one was feeding in a marsh. I named this piece from fond memories going on snipe hunts at summer camp. The scary toothsome imaginary snipes we 'hunted' with brooms and paper bags in the dark were nothing like the real life little bird!
