This is the front of a card I painted for my cousin. She came to visit me in British Columbia from Ontario and just loved our coast line. One day while we were walking along the beach, she was picking up shells and looking at them, putting them down and picking up another. She picked up a beautiful oyster shell and suddenly started to be stocked by a Sea gull. All around the beach and along our mile long pier this Sea Gull followed her, its mouth wide open making a very intense wheezing sound. I guess it figured she was stealing its shells. Now she is back home and to commemorate her visit I painted this card titled 'The Wheezing Seagull' for her.
