Great Blue Heron Painting

Oil Painting of Picturesque Nature

I was pretty lucky to have been able to do this painting. Earlier this summer, I was strolling my boys around the neighborhood we live in, and we were walking over by a forested creek where a colony of great blue herons can sometimes be seen flying about. I just happened to see through the trees a great blue heron slowly wading in the water, about 100 feet away. In that moment, I took off running with my camera and left my boys sitting on the path in their stroller. They probably wondered what the heck Dad was doing, although they seemed to get a kick out of it and were laughing. As I approached, I slowed down to practically walking on my tip toes so that the bird didn’t fly away! Luckily it didn’t, and I got to take several photos of it. There is nothing like seeing animals in their natural habitat from a good viewing distance!
