Rob was fascinated with the textures and artistry of duck decoys. Unlike many other decoys he painted, which were silhouetted on the white background, this one has a splash of warmth around and behind it to further enhance the detail of the decoy itself. The result is warm and contemporary, even though the subject matter is rustic. In the ’80s and ’90s, he painted quite a few of these decoys. Many of the decoys were painted for Ducks Unlimited, but several were sold through galleries and his studio.
This was found in his studio after Rob passed in 2017. It is matted and wrapped in plastic, but the mat is beat up on the corners and would likely need to be replaced before framing it. Painting is not framed.
