Loon on her nest


The loon hid herself by flattening into her nest, she’d prefer to not be noticed as we canoed past her. We went on quietly and left her to her important work.


Loon on her nest is an original, one-of-a-kind fine art painting by Alison C. Dibble, oil on panel, 6 x 6 inches (15 x 15 cm). It is framed and ready to hang. The price ($350 USD) includes packing, handling and shipping to the lower 48 states of the USA*.

The inspiration for this painting was a wildlife encounter, though the loon must have preferred to not be part of it. I saw the loon while I was in a canoe documenting the plants at the north end of Baxter State Park in Maine a few years ago. I was impressed with the way she huddled down on her nest, pressing herself low over her precious eggs. She was broody,  and too focused to interact with us.
