'Ducks on the River' has always been a great favourite in my greeting card range.  I love the combination of blues and greens which reminds me of a book I was read to in childhood with illustrations of the song 'Green Grow the Rushes O' - or was it 'Lord of the Rushie River - I don't remember.  The stylised ducks do remind me though of Beatrix Potter's Jemima Puddle Duck and I often thought this painting would make a good children's book illustration.
