I always enjoy the gulls whenever we are near the beach.  I love to hear them call to each other and even like the frenzied cries when they spot a dropped morsel of food!  I am not sure where we were when I took the reference photo for this little portrait, but I knew I would enjoy painting him.

Gulls are peculiar birds, nearly always facing the ocean when they stand on the beach.  I thought this one seemed unable to make up his mind which view he preferred.
