Description Graceful swans in a serene lakeside setting. Now this one really does look nice over a couch. I know because I have it hanging over my couch! I painted this using photo reference. All the distracting people were taken out. True story - this graceful scene almost turned unpleasant because a woman was letting her child get face to face with the swans. Swans are pretty, but they are actually kind of mean and don't seem to like people too much. So please don't let your children commune with them, especially if they are at eye-level with a beak. Thankfully, nobody got hurt, but it did get very tense for a few minutes.
