Bluebills Visit Silver Lake By Les Kouba

By Les C. Kouba

Bluebills Visit Silver Lake The Silver Lake, Minnesota, Centennial painting by Les Kouba

This was commissioned by Gordon Schultz of the Silver Lake Sportsmanís Club who wanted to do something on the same order as I had done for Gaylord. Instead of redheads, however, they wanted bluebills which were more commonly found in the area. With my love for blue bills, it was a natural. I couldn't resist taking on the assignment.

I went out with a bunch of the local boys in a pontoon boat and took many different photographs of the Silver Lake skyline. The town had made changes in their skyline through the years. I took some of the old and some of the new and combined them.

I did this painting in watercolor using an unusual technique. I wanted it to appear as a colored etching, so I did a colored pen-and-ink drawing that I painted later. I was able to achieve a storybook, greeting card essence. I wanted to give this painting a historic flavor and it worked. ~ Les Kouba
