The Wing Of Doofus by WildestArt

Currently unavailable for purchase

Some of you may know this as my Avatar, but this is my Rouen Duck, Doofus’ wing. I live in Stuttgart, Ark USA, the Rice and Duck Capital Of The World. We love our ducks here. Hes a large flightless duck, and the reason I got him is because he looks just like a wild mallard drake. Hes used to me handling him. Sometimes I bring him in my studio and sit him in my lap(with a towel, of course) while I paint him. i do a lot of mallard pictures. He’ll just go to sleep. I answered the door once with him tucked under my arm. It was a salesman. He started to say something, looked at the duck, and just turned and walked away. It was funny. I wish it would work with the phone marketers! I have several ducks. Rufus The Red you already know about. Hes pretty shifty and mean. But Doofus is sweet, and well, kinda dumb, hence the name…..Taken with a SanyoVPC-E2100.

I’ve had a camera in my hand since the old Swinger Camera days (remember those?). EVERYWHERE I go, my cameras go. My friends and family gave up trying to separate us a long time ago….But I’m relatively new to digital photography. I keep saying “Where have you been all my life…?” There are so many beautiful images on Red Bubble. I’m SO inspired!

    After reading this, it reminds me of the same kind of duck I once had, his name was Gibson, after the guitar as my son named him. We had the pair and they were so much fun. I love them.

    Very neat; so that was what your avatar was – it makes a cool abstract; I always thought you avatar looked like some kind of eye. The story of the salesman is a funny one – I wish it could work on phone marketers too!
