Ugly Duckling by imaginism Ugly Duckling by imaginism
Done in Acrylic for the "MERVEILLEUX" gallery show at Arludik in Paris. arludik.com/index4.htm
Everyone chose a fairytale. I chose the tale of "the Ugly Duckling" but instead of making him ugly, I wanted to take the opportunity as a reminder to embrace our differences. It's what makes us special:)

Sending positive vibes to you all.
Bobby

He's so adorable. I really love it. I can imagine him resurfacing and using the top of his head to mimic some grass/reeds while the rest of the body remains underwater... Love it!
I wish I could be in Paris.. :)
