Grace In Gravity

Grace In Gravity
16 x 20 Oil
I've somehow tuned into Blue Herons and the White Egrets this year. Being fairly common along our lakes and ponds, the herons and egrets have captured my interest.  It's amazing how these large birds can gracefully maneuver its surrender to gravity and set itself down in the reeds along the shoreline of our lakes and ponds.

This, along with some previous paintings, is off to our Project Art for Nature (PAN) exhibition coming up at The Phipps Center for the Arts in Hudson, WI. Aug 19 - Sept 25. Opening reception Aug 26.
If you are in the area please be sure to stop by!



i think we are all taken with such beautiful birds in nature - to me they are particularly reminiscent of our ancient cousins, the dinosaurs - but graceful and delicate - such a wonderful painting where you've captured their beauty and grace -
