This painting is an original acrylic on canvas. It is rather large and is 24x37 inches in size. The painting is on canvas and for sale. It comes signed on the front and ready to hang. It is entitled, "Pelican Sunrise". The colors are bold and the composition is tight and the focus is on the subject of the pelican. Pelicans have been persecuted by humans for their perceived competition for fish, despite the fact that their diet overlaps little with fish caught by people. Starting in the 1880s, American white pelicans were clubbed and shot, their eggs and young were deliberately destroyed, and their feeding and nesting sites were degraded by water management schemes and wetland drainage. Even in the 21st century, an increase in the population of American white pelicans in south-eastern Idaho in the US was seen to threaten the recreational cutthroat trout fishery there, leading to official attempts to reduce pelican numbers through systematic harassment and culling.
