"Heron Reflections" by Carol Thompson

Heron Reflections

"If you stand quite still you will have the chance to watch a great blue heron slowly and gracefully move through the shallows of a pond or rock lined waterway, it's reflections wavering across the surface."

Artist comment:  "A Great Blue Heron stands regal and elegant, as it patiently watches for an opportunity to select a morsel from the shallows. This is a large oil painting that I did from photographs and sketches researched at the boat launch in south west Ilwaco alongside the jetty. I had to work quickly before the magnificent bird raised its large wings and slowly flew away to a place less public. In my studio, I painted a 60" X 30" linen canvas with traditional oil. I loved the challenge to portray the bird and its 'wavering' double."
