A while back, I was with some artist friends doing small paintings of fishing boats in harbor.  This is one of the two I finished that day.  Painting wise, it was a  really  productive, fun day.  Unfortunately, just as we were sitting down to our lunch on the end of a wharf, I saw a blur out of the side of one of my eyes, and felt a slight impact on the front of my windbreaker.  I looked down and found I had been targeted successfully by a pelican with apparent intestinal problems!  What a mess!  And what a critic!  After the laughter (not mine) died down, I doffed the windbreaker and cleaned up the mess.  Luckily, I had a lot of paper towels.  Just one more of the problems plein air painters face.          Mike
