Heron 36 x 24 oil


I lost it for a while, not my will to paint, just my blog update ability! Well I'm back, so here goes...
Great Blue heron . This is our regular Great Blue. He's always out in front of the house. That is when the ospreys aren't chasing him away, ... My son calls him Jimmy!

Matt,
I see you're on the Birds in Art list this year. Will you be attending opening weekend in Wausau? I hope to see you there.

Awesome piece Matthew! I just love the color palette...the blues, greens, lavenders...and I love the backlighting and the way you handled the edges. Wonderful.

Again , many thanks for the positive comments. Jim , I don't know whether to go along to Birds in Art this year. I have probably left it too late, but I always enjoy the weekend. I wish I could make decisions!!

This heron is the next best thing to real! I think I saw him move.
