Standing Tall and Proud

This great blue heron, again on odd size paper, looks like he is standing guard at the entrance to the swamp.

I call this one "Ruffled Feathers"

I get to see white herons, and great white egrets on a regular basis in the wetland areas that surround where I live. But a blue heron sighting is more rare. For these poses I would like to thank the artists who share their photos on wetcanvas.com.






This painting is on larger paper 15" x 11'

  2. These are beautiful and its been awhile since I've spotted one of these beauties in 'real life'. The colors and brushwork are breathtaking!
