Egret Rising - sold



"You cannot prevent the birds of sadness from passing over your head, but you can prevent their making a nest in your hair."
- Chinese proverb



6"x6" oil on gessoed masonite artboard

Here's a warm-up for today. I hope to get started on something larger this afternoon!

Today's painting is "Egret Rising". I got to spend some time watching egrets & herons while painting down in Chincoteague the other weekend. They are such beautiful birds- there were so many of them feeding in a marshy area where we were painting. They were squawking & chattering as well as gorging on some kind of marine worms....and then all at once they took off & left us in silence.
